One of Greg's Sudan Games

A good friend of mine, Greg, has an absolutely beautiful collection of Sudan-era colonials. He came to Regina to put on a game at my place (when we still lived in the loft). I don't remember the exact specifics of the battle but I do know that the Brits came to a sticky end. Here are a few shots from that game.
Here's Greg explaining the scenario to the boys.

A British engineering group it the target of the Sudanese attack.

Tribesmen ready to take their spears to the infidels.

These Highlanders get the worst of it from an attack of camel-riders.
The Sudanese force their way into the town and start hunting for the Engineering party.

The British relief force arrive just too late to save their comrades.
