Major Dundee, sir, Here They Come Again!


Here they come again!

Just when we all thought that things were going to quiet down at the Oasis of El-Dubie,  the sound of the war drums beats again signaling a new Dervish attack is imminent.

The purpose of all of this is to give the BAR Colonial rules another work out or play test. The last battle proved that the Dervish require large numbers of men, so instead of 50 to 70 figures, this time they have over 100 charging figures and the same dozen riflemen in support. I also massed the 14 Dervish horse together rather than spreading them all over the table. The 21st Lancers still have 10 troopers.

A panoramic view using Cinemax provides a colorful view of the Dervish attack.

A few men are stationed at the side and rear of the zeriba, just in case another attack develops there, but otherwise, it's every rifle to the front.

The Dervish emerge from the Acacia brush, this time with over 100 figures  instead of 50-70.



This time the fanatical Beja and Hadendoa tribesmen from Eastern Sudan join in on the attack.

  1. As with your SYW gear, I never tire of looking at photographs of these figures and their scenery.

  2. The Dervish really had a welcome spot of color to a colonial game. Fantastic looking set up!
