Last week at ARSM our members played the battle of Elandslaagte in 15mm, using Battles for Empire II. Check out the photos here:

Two Elangslaagte AARs within a week! Thanks for posting. How was Empire II for playing Boer War?

Yeah, right?! I didn t even know that this battle existed (I know nothing.).

I was not there, but I am told it works quite well, especially in replicating the boers hit and run tactics, aimed fire, etc. However you should define clear victory conditions and especially set a time limit, otherwise the numerically superior british will have too much time to prepare the attack and it will be too easy for them

Excellent report. Great to see the Boer War being refought. Lovely figures and the train looks cool.
