  1. Love these uniforms…and the paint job!

  2. I always find the French Foreign Legion tempting. Do those rules include scenarios?

  3. Very nice scene, the mahdists are particularly well painted !

  4. The rules have a number of generic type scenarios adaptable to most colonial period armies. For a 64 page book the author managed to cover quite a bit.
