The Valley floor before the battle: ominously quiet
Guides ambushed while crossing the southern pass
Imperial Infantry fighting its way through the northern pass
Mounted guides breaking through into the valley (never to be seen again...)
My Redbox Gurkhas and HaT Guides who received their baptism-of-fire in this game.
All in all it was a fun game in which the British managed to push through the northern pass but their southern column was well and truly massacred by Pathan ambushes. Eventually the British were compelled to retreat. In retrospect the Afghans were a tad too numerous and the Gurkhas should have had some enhanced combat capabilities.
