Last Saturday Giancarlo and Ivano played a colonial match using Osprey's TMWWBK rules system.
Ezio prepared the landscape in which ther are also some wild animals and the effect is very nice
The scenario was an ambush in which Giacarlo’s men (Zanzibar slave merchants) have to attack a German colonial column in the middle of the jungle. German colonials are lead on and painted by Ivano.

Zanzibar tribal units start immediately the attack running against Ivano’s Germans
Ivano detaches the cavalry moving it to intercept one of Giancalo’s unit
The enemies are close and Ivano deploys his regular troops to form a line
Unfortunately for Ivano, Zanzibar’s warbands arrive to the back of the line. The fight continues for two turns but Ivano’s troops are forced to be disbanded
Giancarlo launches his units against irregular German troops but, even if only with four miniatures, this unit resists
In the meanwhile, Ivano recalls his cavalry trying to reach and destroy Zanzibar tribal troops but without success
The match ended with a Zanzibar victory: 9 points against 4
Below I posted some details of the fantastic miniatures painted by my club’s mates.
Ivano’s masterpieces …
… and, of course, Giancarlo's miniatures
