Darkest Africa Game 2 - Wilkinson Vs the Slavers

Ahead of picking up a copy of Congo I organised another game of Darkest Africa game using the Triumph and Tragedy rules. 

The scenario was from Wilkinson vs the Slavers as presented in war games illustrated.

The explorers had heard gun shots and were rushing to save a trader and his wife under fire by some agitated Zanzibaris.

Everything else apart painted by me apart from the the Hex based trees by Chris, and some pre-painted baggage.

The Jetty had been repainted form a much darker Brown and the Zanzibairi'ss had some new colourful leaders.

The camp is theirs, now who has a lighter!

The trader and friends escape, leaving his wife to the mercy of the Zanzibari's
The Zanzibari's managed to take control of the trading camp having failed in their objective of killing the trader. Unfortunately in the confusion they forgot to set light to the camp (the secondary objective) and fled in the face of the reinforcements.
