The Battlefield

The Aghan force


A fearsome bunch

The thin British line

The Afghans charge!!

Ready the Lancers!


In they go, supported by the Ghurkas..

Scratch one Afghan


Good PiPs for Amy, in go the Horde!

Let the combat begin...

AAAAaarrgghhhh!

The British force stands firm

One kill for the Afghans

The Begal Lancers are halted

Slowly carving up the Afghans


BOOM!

Good British firepower...

One last effort for Amy

Huzzah! British Bayonet power

One more Afghan kill, too little too late.

Boom!!

One more kill.. British Victory!!

Hiya,

Lovely looking action and an exciting report as well - I really enjoyed this. The explosion markers - are they from LITKO?

All the best,

David Crook

Fantastic!!

Cheers Fellas, thanks for the nice comments. Yes, the markers are by Litko. We recently had a 'room change' in our humble abode, the box with our skull & direction markers is now listed as 'MIA'....

Hi,

Inspiring as always! I like the look of the Litko stuff, but find them a bit pricey. Are you happy that you bought what you did? Do you feel they are worth the money?

Best regards,

Chris

I agree Chris, the Litko stuff is expensive. However they have a good range, as long as you will use & have a purpose for the item then I would say they are worth the money. The large explosions fit in well with the pics. We also got some small explosions, these will replace the casualty counters in some other games.

Cheers
