Just the two games with week with me umpiring a couple of players new to the rules as they missed last weeks game. Both played To the last bullet - where the defender loses 25% of their troops but gains some harder cover and slightly easier victory conditions.
Table 1 - 28mm NWF, Russians vs British
The British attacked with a good quality force of mostly Indian troops and so numbers were fairly even die to the lower quality of the Russian infantry.
|Great game Russians
|Bengal Lancers vs Cossacks
Table 2 - 20mm, British vs MahdistsThis was a larger game than the first with the British on the defensive They deployed in a shallow arc centred on the fortifications, with Lancers on their left. The Mahdists simply filled the board edge.
