Whenever I hit the 'Wargaming Doldrums' and are at a loss what to game next or lack enthusiasm - I fall back onto my old favourite The Sword And The Flame , 30 plus years old I find they still deliver !.In fact the would probably be my 'Desert Island rules set' .
My campaign of choice is usually the North West Frontier , here the Bengal Lancers move down the valley to intercept the Pathans.
The British Commander Col. Crawley (known as 'Creepy' to his men) .
The Wily Pathans lie in wait.
The object of the British force - a Russian military advisor , here seen have a disagreement with the Afghan leader.
The Afghan regulars open fire on the British force.
Capt. Broadbent leads the Rajphuts forward to get to grips with them !.
The Lancers advance , one Squadron dismounts to give covering fire.
The game is intterupted as the telegraph line is attacked by Hodge , note this photo is blurred as I lunge forward to rescue the telegraph pole from the jaws of the marauding cat.
The Lancers charge just falls short . The game is still in the balance and a further report will appear soon. The figures are a mixture of Foundry and Old Glory .
