Well the Bongolesia game went off a lot better than I thought it was going to go. We had a full table, and Jerry did a good job as host.
I've been writing the AAR up in "installments" on the Bongolesia site. (http://bongolesia.blogspot.com); and including pics, but here is a pic of the table setup for the game. The BARF encampment is on the left, and all "rescuing forces", (to use the phrase loosely), came in on the right...
Junkotown is not listed on most maps of Bongolesia. After all one small crappy dilapidated village is pretty much like all the others there...
One of the things I wanted to do to make this game special was for my best friend Dan. Dan and I have been friends since around 1984 when were were serving together in the Army in Germany and essentially became brothers in many ways.
For a Christmas present, I decided to paint him up a mercenary force; "Merchants Marauders", along with a special "carry box".
The box is actually a wooden cigar box, with a plaid cloth lining in it. Once the figs were in, it
The box without the figs in it...
And with the figs in it!
Needless to say, Dan was pretty happy to get them. He's been one of my two best friends for over 20 years, and it made me feel good to know that I could do something special for him.
Here's a pic of my chum holding his prize troops; Too bad they got bloodied the next day on the table...ah well...se la vie!
