    Looking for a new opponent for your Mahdists? Have the British got just too ‘old hat?’
    Try the Martians. Here’s a campaign for you which can be played solo.

    Thanks
    It did strike me that if the Mahdists had the bottle to take on a British infantry line in position with full supports, a few Martian tripods would look worth a go ๐Ÿ™‚

    People who have never seen technology and advanced weaponry have no fear of it Jim, though after first contact that perception may change.

    Indeed.
    What always struck me about those who formed up at Omdurman was that they had seen the technology, perhaps not brought to the lethal perfection that it achieved on that day.

    Incidentally, I remember somehow getting into a discussion with somebody back in the 1990s when the internet was still young. He was Sudanese and the repercussions of the Mahdi and those who followed him were still working their way through Sudanese society.
