British Operations Against The mad mullah

A wargamer's Guide

I started work on this project quite a few years ago because the idea of a tribal army fighting with various levels of success against the British Empire for 20 years.  Inspiring leaders, characters, biplanes, camels, mountain guns and lots of different troop types all can be found in this campaign.  The operations include open battles, ambushes, skirmishes, patrols, sieges - almost everything in fact. 


Almost all of the figures are readily available plastic 1/72 figures so the whole project is relatively inexpensive.


But first a word about a society well worth joining:


For those wishing to keep up to date with developments in this campaign and WW2 and other wargames related matters you really should join the Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers (SOTCW).  Here you will find a most helpful bunch of people who are kind enough to respond to questions and give help in finding that elusive model.  In addition you will receive the highly interesting and informative “Journal” with articles, scenarios and adverts.  Not only that a large number of suppliers give Society have discounts that can let you easily recover the cost of your subscription.
