Between real world commitments and the amount of games I'm getting to play at the moment (not complaining) I am a bit behind on the battle reports but will endeavour to catch up as soon as possible.
A few week's back, after our The Men Who Would Be Kings dabble with the Babbage Engine Native generator, George and I decided to try it again, this time on the North-West Frontier with George taking control of the randomly generated Pathan units as I attempted to bring civilisation to these "pore benighted 'eathen" - well seize some of their camel trains dotted around the table! (here they are posing for a pre-match 'team photo!')
Another sad tale of Imperial failure to be read in the newsheets of Calcutta and London over breakfast...
The game was a lot of fun and for some time it felt like success might be had by the brave sons of Empire as they defeated enemy units and Mr Babbage did not regenerate Pathan units. However the change of luck that occurred with the arrival of the Pathans within charge range of the 92nd Highlanders and my subsequent poor dice rolling for morale checks sealed another Imperial defeat.
