I first played it in December 1981 as part of a club effort with each of us raising our own armies, using 1/72 Airfix figures [and several other manufacturers converted]. I used several boxes of the Airfix Arabs. Our rules were "Gory Glory" a local [South African] set.
Now I'm building up a 28mm set of armies. 6x4 is a bit small though… for that I'd go 15mm.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP opines...

I've been interested in gaming this period for the last few years, mostly because of the colorful African tribal armies involved. 28mm seems like the perfect scale to display these lovely tribesmen, particularly with the Perrys now doing them in plastic, but playing a large conflict like this in 28mm feels a bit cramped on my 8x4 table.

In 15mm, however, the various Mahdi units seem to lose some of their luster in the smaller scale, plus I'm unaware of many choices to date for the period in that scale. (Peter Pig being one of the lovely exceptions!)

So, what scale for your Fuzzy Wuzzies?
