Play up! Play up! And play the game!

Monday's game in GHQ is all set to feature an overdue return to manly action and deeds of daring do in the sands of the Sudan. Lord Rawnsley's Desert Column aim to put an end to the rebellious Osman bin Lina, known to all as the Barmy Bhykli! Instead though of using our usual rules, A Good Dusting, we thought we would use Black Powder, with tweaks from the Blood on the Nile supplement. A few shots of the scene of the action to raise your interest ~
The lair of Osman bin Lina














The wadi el Andhi












Lord Rawnsley takes tea.


















God bless the navy!
























Pop back after Tiffin on Monday and see how it all unraveled for one or the other of us.

    1. Well, it will do Roger, but I'd like a better base cloth really, it's a tad light, especially for photos.
