Fresh from a Military career in the snowy wastes of Canada Colonel Mc Duff has taken up a position in the forces of the Republic of Helenyka . He and his small force where a kind gift from Ross Macfarlane .: A gift from the New World . (tonystoysoldiers.blogspot.com) and are seen here manning a French Mitrailleuse Machine Gun .
His first assignment is a tough one, he has been given a motley force of Volunteers, Irregulars and only one unit of Regulars to defend a Border crossing from an incursion of the forces of the Sublime Porte , here seen on the left - Mc Duff's force is on the lower right.
The Army of the Sublime Porte move onto the tabletop - 2 units of Regular Infantry , 1 unit of Border force , a unit of Lancers and a gun and crew - enough to brush the Helenyka rabble away !
The Sublime Porte force has 'Bruiser' as an asset .
The Republican asset.
The game set up - it will last for the drawing of 4 Joker cards , so McDuff is up against the clock . Battle report to follow .........
