|1st Brigade Square - Trophy Miniatures - Sinclair's Brigade
|Two squares of British with machine guns on the corners and cavalry watching the flanks makes for a formidable defense against the Dervish (CLICK ON ALL PIX TO ENLARGE THE VIEW)
We are down to three days before the epic toy soldiers in the Sudan game takes place and I am getting very excited about the game. The pictures of two squares on the table should give you an idea of what the game might look like.
|Here you can see two squadrons of lancer cavalry protecting the flank and rear of the British squares.
|Two bands of Dervish launch an attack upon the squares.
|A brace of machine guns arrived today to reinforce the British: Gatling Gun (left) and Maxim (right)
|Some new Dervish cavalry that have recently joined the Mahdi (from Trophy of Wales).
|A view of the game tables and my game room. I think that the Union Jack flag gets one in the mood for a good old fashioned Colonial Bash with big 54mm toy soldiers.
|Another pictue of the Trophy square. Note the dismounted camels in the center that represent the baggage that follows the square. They also provide a barrier in the event that the Dervish break into the square.
Come back tomorrow for more pictures.
