|The binoculars are out - now where is that stupid Governor!|
This weekend the Napoleonic Wargaming Society is putting on one of its famous gaming days. These six weekly occurrences allow so many of our members to play a slightly larger game than usual in the more leisurely time frame of a Saturday rather than a weeknight Wednesday.
This Saturday I thought that it would be an ideal opportunity to play one of the original WHC Sudan scenarios as supplied to me by AJ.
Scenario: “Rescue the Governor.” William Willoughby-Pratt Pasha is Governor of a Sudanese town. Much like his mentor General Gordon, he refuses to abandon his post in the face of the Mahdist threat. It requires an Imperial expedition to set off down the table to the town to bring himself and his dependents out. Once the Imperial force reaches the town, the Governor will automatically agree to leave.
I have a few small items to finish off this week prior to the game but we should have six members having a real shot at trying to rescue the Governor before the Mahdists liberate him of his head.
Will post a few photos and an AAR next week.
