TSATF Games at Hurricon 2016

                    TSATF Games at Hurricon - 2016 - 22 - 25 Sept. 2016


            The Battle of Aba Island - The Hunt for the Mahdi, 12 August 1881.

This is a gunboat I made in early 2000 from a hull picked up from a colonial gamer on the net. Being my first attempt at any nautical craft it is a fairly usable and fun model. However, compared to my buddy Dan's recent creations I should just give it to my kids to play with....LOL. The figs are 28mm by Castaway Arts (Infantry) and Old Glory (Crew), and the flag is by the awesome Rick O'Brien of the Rick has done ALL my colonial flags and I can't recommend him enough for any and all period flags in many scales. Check out my links list for links to all these great mfgrs.

Check out Dan's awesome blog and fantastic hand made gunboats:

Nevertheless I still really like this boat and will be using it in my upcoming Sudan game based on the first official clash of arms between Egypt's Khedive and the self proclaimed prophet, the expected one, Muhammad Ahmad the Mahdi!
