I've been a bit out-of-the-hobby loop lately due to "Real Life" being extra-busy, but I finally got around to posting a long-overdue AAR on a game I played back in early December 2017.

The interim was filled with some significant real life events, and I wound up blogging about them as well as the game. Nothing too traumatic, though one of the events was a memorial for my cousin who passed away about a year ago, a great guy dearly missed by many. The most recent real world news was great -- my daughter received an appointment to the USMA at West Point and I'm sure that was due to what she learned pushing lead and throwing dice in anger across the table from me over the years (just kidding!!!).

But if you're not interested in any of that personal stuff, you can easily scroll down to where it says "ACTUAL WARGAME AAR STARTS HERE…" in XXL lettering and still enjoy 188 pics of c.1879 Anglo-Indian vs. Afghan wargame goodness.

Here's some pics to whet your Victorian Colonial whistle:

…and I apologize in advance for what happened to the Gurkhas.
