I was at Falkirk and District Wargames Club for a game this week. Dave Paterson has been busy rebasing a huge collection of 15mm Colonial figures that he bought. He is about half way thru the project so we decided to give the Madhists an outing against an Anglo-Egyptian force.

|The isolated Egyptian brigade - got flanked but broke their Madhist opponents|
We used Black Powder with the amended turn sequence. It was a very enjoyable game. Two of my three Madhist commands failed to move on the first 2 turns. My left wing force however advanced quickly and engaged the Egyptian brigade who though in a very bad position broke the Madhist command! My right wing command managed finally to move and engaged the combined British Naval and Rifle brigade and wiped them all out. Even with their Stoic rerolls. At that point we declared the game a draw.
