So there we were the Thuggees were in the mountains and the British army was in march column moving forward, unknowing of their danger. Then a small Indian man in a British red jacket of Regulars, stands tall on a parapet! With his trumpet angled high in the air, the sound of fall in rang along the mountain sides and on to the valley below. The British are warned, a shot rings out and our hero Gunga Din is down!
So starts our battle of the pass of Gunga Din! Brent out did himself again! Field of Honor was used with all units named and marked for easy play. 28 mm figures. The British Cavalry were told to attack an artillery battery by a hill in the center left, but the Thugees come down out of the mountain…we had to charge them…we are British Cavalry after all. With great fighting we nullify that hill of tribesmen but there are few British horse left. On the right, the British tried the same thing but were surrounded and none survived the conflict.
In the center, well the Thugee guns were still there and putting up a tremendous fight, but the British line held and the British Elephant gun held the right. The Thuggee army has lost the standard of the Kali, and both commanders on the left flank. The British Sgt Mjrs, still held the parapets and the Thuggee’s started the move back into the hills.
We had 2 new players and a number of cheering observers this night, capping off a great time!
