Ran our first test game with 8 stands of 4 figures (representing a battalion) substituting for the usual 12-figure unit in 28mm, with 12-stand units of Dervishes and 24pt forces. We made a couple of tweaks to the original rules but it went very well and, above all, we had fun. Now let's see how we manage with over 100 points per side, which is the next planned test, 15mm Sudan again.
Then the big one...Isandlwana in 28mm will be our Xmas game using MWWBK: plan is for 130 points of Brits and Auxiliaries (270 figures in 27 units) taking on (if everyone turns up) around 800 Zulus (c. 250pts) on a 12'x6' table.
Pith helmets, questionable Xmas knitwear and Mince Pies will all be optional.
