|Having been stuck in place by fog, they immediately faced hostile tribals|
So with three new explorers, six Askari and ten bearers (all loaded down with food), they set of for pastures new.
Here follows a brief report on their exploits.
|Hand to hand action everywhere|
|The natives were no match for the explorers and easily dealt with.|
|Day 2, more action!|
|Eight Natives, four rifles and four hand weapons came from North and South.|
|A scorpion appeared....|
|...but soon departed.|
|Two native rifles took up their positions in cover|
|Everyone flees to cover or safety|
|Brave explorer taking on a native in melee|
|Brave, but foolish.|
|Elsewhere, there were successes though.|
|Finally the native resolve was broken.|
|Final situation (play spot the Native)|
We had played, with only a slight ten minute break, for about four hours and the time went very swiftly.
Playing as the natives was fun, but far more difficult than I'd envisaged as my human opponent's terrain placement was far different than I'd expected.
Even though I've enjoyed playing solo, playing with an opponent was a far more rewarding experience and one I hope I'll have again soon.
In other news, time has been of the essence in this last week as real-life has eaten most of what I have had, leaving me very tired and lethargic, so sorry if my comments on any blog posts has been brief or missed! I can't see it get any better this week as more hospital and clinic visits are imminent too and hobby-related activities have taken a back-seat.
That's it then for this week, thanks for taking the time to visit and as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
