Totally super as always. Nice idea for a simple scenario. If the boat were made Egyptian crewed, it cd be historical from Gordon siege period, or before.

Beautiful. Must be fun.

If this did not turn your cousins into wargamers, there is no hope for them.

Durban Gamers, funny you should say that. I have a paint bench with a load of Egyptian Infantry and Cavalry. This Egyptian unit I am using now I bought at Hurricon. The next campaign will be all about the Egyptians. Last Stand

Great looking game, Danno. I can't wait for Mumbasa to sack you or let you live because the game looks so great ;)

…And some people still don't get why "The Sword And The Flame" is the most popular set of Colonial War Games rules in history.

That's another great AAR of a beautiful and exciting game. I love it when a game decision comes down to the last turn!
Your style of AAR is very colorful and easy to follow. Highly enjoyable. I can follow the flow of the game and almost feel like I'm there.

It appears that Gunboat #77 has been building quite the reputation due to its many recent engagements in the Sudan.

Once again your hand made gunboats are fantastic and really enhance the look and feel of the game. Very pretty and gamer friendly. We all want one of each for our games!!!!

It's great to see your young cousins getting bit by the gaming bug. Maybe they'd go to a con with you. Keep recruiting sir…….

PS – I've seen mention of your gunboats and dhows for sale on EBay, very cool. Will you be selling them off your website as well? I know you've sold them at cons as I was lucky enough to be there with you.

Just keep building, just keep building my friend.
