This is game 100 and a milestone. Bizarrely it wasn't in 10mm. It was 28mm Sudan fighting using the "Sands of Sudan" rules by Carlo Pagano who spent a lot of time collating all the old bits of information of the original rules by Peter Gilder.
The figures and terrain are all from Dave Docherty's collection, nearly all of it was used to play the game. Dave and his friend Martin were the umpires. The table, as you know, has 2 x 24 feet lengths. A column would march down each, Omdurman being the ultimate target at the other end, plus the relief of the Egyptians and the retrieval of the wives!
They are certainly alive and kicking. Briefly, the players are the colonialist forces trying to relieve Gordon, and the bad guys are card generated and played by the umpires. The Colonialists have to advance 24 feet along the table to Omdurman. Near to Omdurman is a forward base garrisoned by 2 Egyptian btns. They would need rescuing. In addition, the Officers wives have wandered through the desert to this base for a "jolly outing". The main column also has reporters who will obviously exaggerated both success and failures.
Many pictures were taken, here are a few to enjoy.
