|A shot showing Nathans "The Sands of Sudan" rules being used for Zulu Wars|
One of the most satisfying aspects of bringing together the famous Gilder Sudan rules has been the photographs, links, comments and blogs where gamers from all over the world have sent through details of their projects and work.
To be a small part of the resurgence in wargaming the Sudan, along with other publications such as Black Powder, Sword and the Flame, Science versus Pluck etc. is sensational.
I thought it would be a great opportunity to show off some of the fine blogs from some very talented wargaming folks from all four corners of the wargaming world.
Firstly the very famous Lonely Gamers site has a cult following amongst the hobby and Nathan is a friend as well. He has played games not only in the Sudan but also adapted the rules to fight the Anglo invasion of Zululand. As most of you are aware the plan is later in the year to produce a Sudan Campaign set of rules as well as the first adaption of the "Sudan" to be able to play Zulu Wars alongst with a dedicated Random Event Card deck as well.

Though there are no Sudan pictures on his blog yet, be assured his work is sensational and we are all looking forward to his first battle report.
Andy Lawson from Legendary Wargames in Yorkshire has a seriously wonderful Sudan collection and his their new blog promises to have many photographs of the collection in coming months:
Now lets talk about someone with a serious megalomania problem...and I say that in the most endearing fashion possible.
Dave Doc is single handedly painting every Connoisseur figure ever cast since Peter Gilder was in short pants.
