|Day 9: Onward, ever onward , but towards JIm's Landing !|
Day Nine"As we moved North-east, following the river into jungle we noticed several ancient man-made stone dwellings among the undergrowth of the jungle.. I declared it an Ancient lost city of probably Persian origin, though Frederick thought it Roman."
|Day 10 and nearly home!|
Day 10"Another monotonous trek following the river Northeast through the hot humid jungle, the tedium only broken by our discovery of yet another new plant species which I spotted first! I declared the Warton Fern, Frederick mumbled something about wild grass. We also spotted some native Tribal types that were underwhelmed by our presence and ignored us.
I calculate that we have enough food for a further single day's exploration before having to return to Jim's Landing."
"Breaking camp early in the morning, ready for yet our last day following the river Northeast before being forced by lack of victuals to return to Jim's Landing.
Whilst in the tricky process of crossing a stream, I completely failed to notice an ambush up ahead!"
|The Exchange of fire and everyone that can getting out of the stream|
Everyone that could scurried for cover or got in a position to shoot. Both Frederick and I manfully stood our ground."
|The last fight|
With the demise of half their comrades and no further casualties on our part, the natives departed and the swift but brutal fight was over."

In other news, we now have central heating and whilst I haven't entirely stopped painting, it has been sporadic and I never did manage to finish off the unit I intended to do. I have manged to dry-bush over 400 bases.!
The photo on the right shows half the bases finished (top)
and all the bases finished (bottom but rotated 180 deg.).
I've also been working on Jimland rules and after much humming and harring I settled for a version of the Source of the Nile that fits in with the Jimland rules, using a D6 and a single table!
