I have uploaded the Orders of Battle here James put together a brilliant scenario that really played out well.
Eritrean Askaris are targeted by British 2 inch mortars firing smoke rounds
|The British forward observer lives a charmed life despite Italian shelling and mortar fire|
All movement was at a -2 modifier to represent the difficult terrain of the mountain side, all shots down the hill would be Ok shots where all shots up the hill would be Poor shots.
|Up and at 'em lads!|
|The mountain gun crew come under increasing pressure - the flag seems a tempting target for the Brits!|
|Going in with grenades at the ready|
|Tough work, this climbing business|
|Lt Gibbs rallies his forces, having just survived a close shave in the front line|
|A late-arriving section of Eritreans finds itself shot up by Empire forces|
A great game, that turned from a battle against the Italians into more of a quest between myself and Steve as to who could get their troops to the top first.

|Nearly at the top! A fierce counter attack by Bersaglieri holds up the Brits|
