Those Blood-Red Desert Sands

I have spent the past few days quietly re-painting the basing on my Sudan collection. It's been built up over the past 8 years or so, and over time as my style and paint stocks have varied, they have taken on a pretty motley appearance.

In working on them, I have decided to undertake a small Sudan campaign.

It's not terribly historical and telescopes the events of the Mahdi Revolt into 20 campaign moves. Still, I hope it reflects some of the flavour of the period.

The campaign system is that Steve Winter published on his old "The Colonial Angle" wesbiste.

I'll be preparing and putting up my materials over the rest of this week and hopefully kick things off this time next week.

If you are at all interested, please come and walk with me over those Blood Red Desert Sands.

Are you sure you want to delve into something that you already have a lot of figures for? Just seems wrong somehow. :)

Could be good though.

Yes I know, Ross. Oh, I know.

I should really be planning to do the Minoans or something - I only have a dozen of them. Although.. a little itch scratching may be in order there.
