Rumble in the Pass - A TMWWBK AAR

Filled with enthusiasm after our last game General Ballroom and I persuaded Steve to join us for another game of TMWWBK.
Gen B. unfurled his rather super new mat for the occasion (which for some reason has a rather bluish cast in the pictures).
Steve took the plucky Brits, a Sikh unit of which had recently rescued the lovely "Creamy" Beatrix and were planning to hold on to her until help arrived.
General B took command of the Pathans and I drank beer and adjudicated.

The Sikhs prepare to defend Beatrix's honour (such as it is)

Pathan hordes arrive

Close Order is formed

The Pathans rush on

The thin kahki line gives fire 

Pathan swarm across the hills

The Sikhs are cut down and Beatrix is at the mercy of the Pathans

The 99th Humbersiders arrive

Beatrix is abandoned

More Pathans approach their target

But the Humbersiders are resolute

The last fatal charge of the Ghazis

In the end the plucky Brits won out.
I think I may need more scenery - the natives SEM very vulnerable. The field fun also feels horrendously powerful I may just paint some more soldiers so I don't feel obliged to...ummm...field one every game.
The game certainly cracks along I'm sure we'll play again soon.

    1. Thanks Michael, we enjoyed ourselves.

  2. 'Creamy' Beatrix - brilliant! Definitely paint some more soldiers (maybe some cavalry as well).

    1. Yes, I think I feel the urge for some Bengal lancers..
