The BattleThe background is that the last battles had the British retreating and the Dervish advancing slowly downriver toward Khartoum. So at this point, at an intersection of a tributary running into the Nile is where this one is set. The British are raiding the area and are at their deployment areas. Unknowing to all was a lost company of Camel Corps who have made their way here hoping to be rescued. But that was just a side show the battle raging on the North Point and on the water. Well it didn't seem like a side show to Major Roberts of the Camel Corps. Let the battle begin.
I wanted to thanks all the players who played in the battle. Special thanks to Bill Daniel who makes all of my terrain including that new mud fortress in this AAR. And thanks to Dwight for the flicker candle fire marker idea. He used one at Colonial Barracks and thought wow, its the little things that can bring some realism into your tabletop battles.
