Some were modified as shown with a Solothrum 20mm anti-tank rifle.
On Saturday, November 12th, I did a demo game for HMGS at the Muzeo museum in Anaheim in conjunction with their Victorian Art and Steampunk presentation's. I ran a "The Sword and the Flame" game using a scenario I had ran before, "The Zariba" (taken from the 1939 The Four Feathers movie.)
It ended up that the British and Dervish were both badly mauled but, as can be seen in the last photo on Photobucket, that the Dervish still had a unit of riflemen still relatively intact. If the game had continued and the Dervish Fire Phase was a good one, it would have been all over for the British but still a "Phyrric Victory" for the Dervish as most of their units were routing and under 50%. Also the casualty rate among the Sheik's was high and the British lost their overall Commanderas well. Lots of people came by and checked it out, took flyers about HMGS and loved it. Many compliment's on my paint jobs and board (blush). I might run another game next month...have to think about it.
Also my Dervish tried to escape just before set-up....both boxes took a header and some spears and shields came off. Have to fix that up. I also need to check on the number of figures, I think a couple of the disappeared into the Muzeo after the boxes hit the floor.
