Having half an hour before dinner I lined up a few bases of Fuzzy wuzzy and a company of the Royal Worcester Pearmains to try out the new (and not very neatly squared) Portable Wargame board.
The initial bombardment from the screw gun was ineffective and the Hadendowah moved forward at the charge. A volley of rifle fire brought a score or so down and a few more hesitated in their advance.
However most of the brave warriors charged into the thin khaki line and spears met bayonet point. The melee was short and sharp but the dice went the way of the Pearmains.
I think these could be fun. I'm sure I have a gunboat somewhere.
