A little something from Mafeking.


An action beyond the perimeter to support the armoured train

Excellent historical scenario. Encouraging me to finish building my 15mm Boer War armoured train! Thanks for posting.

Glad it's interested you. I found the scenario intriguing because eye witness accounts show that there wasn't all that much difference in skill between the combatants. But I'm not sure whether any other war has taken place at such ranges for small arms!
It's a war I will have to revisit :-)

Now that's a really interesting scenario.

Unfortunately, my Boer War collection is in 25mm.

I suppose there will have to be tweakage applied.

Thanks for sharing that, Jim.

Have the armoured train in one room and the action taking place in another? :-)

Actually I did consider suggesting using several separate card tables that could be moved closer or further away as troops moved.

I suspect that there will be a lot of ingenuity exhibited by people but I do feel that the basic set up is interesting enough to make it worth it :-)
