Our brave Marines have been sent to rescue some missionaries from the clutches of a notoriously unstable warlord in some third (or maybe fourth) world "banana/mango/coconut republic" sometime in the late 1920s/early 1930s. The scenario, with a few tweaks seems to have worked well so we'll see what happens in November at Colonial Barracks.
And now onto the action:
|The battlefield with the trading post in the far corner. The missionaries must reach this and board the steamer before the notoriously unstable warlord can get his hands on them.|
|The trading post along a pestilent river. The steamboat brought the Marines and the seaplane is there, primarily, for set decoration. It is a 1936 Keystone Loeing amphibious plane model made as a bank. It is currently available in several guises on eBay. The bamboo huts are from a posting on Miniature Wargaming (see my blog posting about them).|
|Hmm, a stranger has mysteriously arrived. Will he influence the fight or his he just there to sight see?"|
|The Marines set out to find the missionaries.|
|They encounter part of the notoriously unstable warlord's army.|
|While the Marines are fighting off part of the notoriously unstable warlord's army, his mounted contingent attacks the missionary party.|
|After the Marine command element gets involved, the attack is stopped but at the cost of the Marine Captain Jack Kelly and his bulldog.|
That's all the pictures I had time to take since I was running the game. If you're coming to Colonial Barracks in New Orleans in November, I'll be running the game on Saturday morning, the 8th.
