This link should go to a set of paper figures for a 19th century Edgar Rice Burroughs/ H. Rider Haggard jungle expedition, including adventurers, askari soldiers, bearers, warriors, a witch doctor, alien or maybe reptilian guys in Roman togas and armor (inhabitants of a lost underground kingdom?) and even Tarzan dismounted or riding Tantor.

This is going to be my first expedition, so to speak, in paper flats, and in any type of wargaming in quite a few years.

I'm picking this genre because it is fun and fantastic, though not full of orcs and trolls (I love Professor Tolkien, but he's a little overdone anymore).

Also, this is a period in which I won't need too many figures to get started.

As to the rules…

I THINK I remember, again, a long time ago, a set of crossover rules between Mordheim and a fantasy Africa setting. I'm not sure if they were published in a White Dwarf or if somebody just put them up on the web.

Anyway, if anyone has these or knows where to get them, I'd appreciate it. Of course, this would not work too well if Mordheim is out of production, so any pointers there would be appreciated too.

If these rules can't be found, then anything else that might help me get into Darkest Africa would be great.

I THINK I remember, again, a long time ago, a set of crossover rules between Mordheim and a fantasy Africa setting.

I dont't recall having seen any, but I understand that back in the day Fanatic released additional Mordheim setting called "Lustria – Cities of Gold" that was set in the Lustrian jungles. There were also figures for at least Amazon warbands released to go with it.

It's a zip file that I can't seem to open.

Just an FYI, it opened for me as a pdf.

Lustria looks like fun, but it seems to be based on the.much earlier Spanish colonization of the Americas. The following is what I was looking for.

I think 2 hour wargames has something along this line

Appears to be some type of zip file I can't open either on my windows desktop.

My link? Yes. It unzips a pdf of the figures for the expedition. Well worth it if you can get it open. I had no trouble.
