It has been a wonderful week for "The Sands of Sudan" rules, based on Peter Gilders WHC classic games, which I had published over eighteen months ago and is currently in its third reprint. The wonderful gentlemen from the AMG forum have just had a sensational looking gaming weekend which played four major games, one of which was a brilliant scenario put together by the very clever Dave Docherty.
The AMG forum ( A Military Gentlemen) is a remarkable thing. Originated from the purchase of Mr. John Ray's tremendous book of the same name it has opened up the door onto a wonderful world of wargaming doyens and their projects. However it has a catch. You need to post, create and contribute to remain a member. Definitely no lurking allowed or you are summarily discharged (politely of course). I believe there are still a handful of copies available to residents of the UK only and you can buy them from here. It will be the best money you spend in the hobby for years I guarantee you!
You can see reports on this games from a few bloggers at :
Dave Docherty - the man responsible or putting on this tremendous series of games has some absolutely cracking shots of the action at his excellent blog One Man and His Brushes. Dave does amazing work and some of his special pieces he put together for the weekend have to be seen to be believed. Very clever and talented man.
Scotia Albion - the mighty Graham Cummings who also sells the tremendous range of Crann Tara Miniatures
Chris Gregg has the excellent Not Just Old School Wargaming where he has some wonderful shots of Dave's game.
Colin Ashton has a wonderful blog called Carryings On Up The Dale with a couple of nice shots of the Sudan game and a heap of tremendous shots of his Battle of Soor SYW.

A little closer to my home, good friend Nathan Vinson from the most wonderful Lonely Gamers has a wonderful "The Sands of Sudan" battle report full of sensational photographs as the British and friends battle or some wells against the Mahdists in an 1884 skirmish that will keep you on your toes until the end.
