Trouble in Zubia

This solo mini-campaign was inspired involvement of Great Britain in Egypt and the Sudan during the latter part of the 19th Century. It involves the imagi-nations of Britannia (Great Britain), Fezia (Ottoman Turkey), and Zubia (Egypt), and sees Britannia interfering in the affairs of Zubia, a semi-independent province of the Fezian Empire. An early precursor to the author's The Portable Wargame rules was used to fight the tabletop battles, and the figures, models and terrain all came from his extensive collections.
