It has been far too long since the Sudan figures and boards have been out upstairs so this weekend will be a milestone. Both my sons will play the part of our British commanders and this can be a refresher in time for a larger game with some new players to the Sudan from the club scheduled for before Christmas.
|Hope the scrub has no surprises!|
The scenario should be an interesting one.
The High Command have been tasked with helping local and British Civil authorities to help construct a rail link between Trinikat and the outlying regions. A line is already in place from Suakin however activities in the west have curtailed progress for a time.
Having sent off three companies of Sudanese Infantry as well as a company of Kents', the engineering officers and surveyors have not been heard of for over two weeks. To make things more intriguing, the Gunboat Sapphire which was dispatched a week ago has also not been seen or heard from.
|Bit more gloss varnish needed for those rivers methinks.|
|Even though the river runs the length of the table, surprises can still pop out!|
Stay tuned for updates over the weekend.
