Black Powder: Blood on the Nile: Sudan Supplement
Product code: AC3119
They charged out of the shimmering desert, thousands of fanatical
warriors dressed in white, brandishing fearsome weapons. These were the
Mahdi’s men and a British soldier’s worst nightmare. The Mahdi had
emerged from the wilderness to lead a rebellion against the Egyptian
government in Sudan. His armies overwhelmed the Egyptians and trapped
Governor Gordon in Khartoum. The British launched a relief expedition,
but it arrived too late. Such an insult to the Empire could not go
unpunished, and the British returned to crush the Mahdists. Sudan then
came under British Imperial control, but, like shifting sands, history
could have turned out very differently.
Using this Black Powder supplement, you can take charge of the British
army fighting in the desert, or assume command of the Mahdi’s forces in
their struggle against the world’s greatest military power. Along the
way, learn about the battles and campaigns of the Mahdist Wars, and the
soldiers who served in them.
The free miniature with this supplement is based firmly on one of
history’s great characters – Colonel Frederick Gustavus Burnaby. For
those who don’t know much about this British officer try an internet
search – he almost beggars belief! This is a superbly sculpted miniature
by Steve Saleh that perfectly portrays this Victorian hero.
A copy of the Black Powder rulebook is required to use this supplement.
