The Imperial forces needed to arrest the Kikuyu leader in the village, the Kikuyu needed to stop them.
Suffice to say that within 2 moves the Colonial troops had fired 6 volleys and most of the Kikuyu had so much shock they could no longer move forward,
My bad luck included two of my leaders being hit by Steve's fire, one of them twice and another falling in a pile of elephant dung and losing a leader status. The Kikuyu spent most of the game finding out how many men can hide behind one bush (Not enough was the answer)
So in Leiu of an interesting game report heres some pictures.
Suffice to say the Kings African Rifles captured the Kikuyu leader and meandered off table with him. Every unit of Kikuyu had suffered horrendous casualties and my force morale was almost gone, Steve hadnt even suffered one point of shock at any point in the game, my Kikuyu never got with 2 feet of him. Still I'm not bitter!
To be fair the last time we played it the outcome was much more even and the cover looked fine until we got the figures on. Well lessons learned for next time.
