With the impossibility of staging an ECW game this year at our annual local Train & Hobby show, we finally settled on the Sudan. Oh, well, the weather will be nicer.
I decided to run through a solo game using Black Powder for the first time. This was a "throw what you got on the table & play" sort of game no subtilty. Just try out the gaming mechanisms.
The Anglo-Egyptians ended up narrowly winning.And the game went fairly smoothly & quickly.
Essentially, the A-Es had to travel from their camp & their riverine transport to the other end of the table.

I still have things to do figures on the painting desk, limber horses etc. And this represents half of the figures we'll be tabling when my pals add their forces.

All metal & plastic 20mm & 1/72 figures. Terrain, township, boats etc all scratch-built.
