Description

Warfare as he had known it was dying of old age as the British soldier and his European counterparts marched off to extinguish the brush fires igniting their colonial empires in the late 19th Century.

Tradition was giving ground to utility everywhere. True, when the Gordon relief expedition met the Mahdi in the Sudan in 1884, it was still the redcoat that was in fashion. But that was already on its way to consignment to history.

The rules on the following pages make an attempt to capture this changing period of history with simulated battles using 15mm or 25mm miniatures. They have been kept as simple as possible to allow for the maneuvering of large armies such as were used against the Zulus. They can be used for recreating battles between the Boers and British, and also for actions in the northwest frontier of India.

The rules are intended to be a guideline for the wargamers interested in this period. New rules can be added and some even discarded, depending on the number of figures in your army, the historical period, and the tactical situation.
