TSATF North West Frontier.


I had started a TSATF game  last posting and here we see the Borsetshires attempting to storm the Afghan held village , in the background reinforcements are arriving for the Afghans in the shape of the 'Highland Guard' .


Unfortunately before they could fire they drew a 'Halt' card which halted the firing sequence .


Afghan tribesmen moved onto the table - but !.....



They drew an 'Incident Card' which meant they did not cooperate with the Afghan General and just sat there and refused to move !.


The attacking Borsetshires took heavy casualties and retired behind a wall carrying their wounded with them (if wounded fall into the hands of the enemy it has a minus effect to their morale).


The other company of the Borsetshires had better luck and 'crowned the heights' driving off the attacking tribesmen .


Then the game took a different direction and ended suddenly when the above card was drawn and the Afghan forces left the field in response to it !, so the British won by default . The use of events does add uncertainty to the game !  Once more an interesting and unusual game TSATF delivers again !.

  4. Dear Tony, wonderful game and figures. TSAF is a cracking game and the cards add so much to solo play. Slight diversion, your suggestion for rosy / ping cheeks on larger figures, not just the marines?

  5. Britians original hollow cast figures were painted with black dots for eyes and a dab of pink on the cheek bones, Tony

  6. Top notch stuff tony. That's a pretty devastating card draw for the native player right there. Are there many like that?

  7. The pack is devided equally between Native, British and events that affect both sides, you can regulate how often an event card is drawn-I was drawing a card each time a 1or2 was rolled on a D6 at the start of each turn, Tony
