A Gift For Our Correspondant

To reward the great efforts of our own N. Parkerski to bring the truth of goings on in Rhanzlistan to the masses, that other great exporter of the truth Pravda has provided some transport for him (well a Christmas gift from Dave really). Here it is in all its pristine glory, pics of more weathered nature will follow in due course.

And remember, the truth is out there.

Red Dawn At Shuzzanabad

The forces of the SPIFF recently won a stunning victory over the Imperialist invaders of the RFF and in doing so are now able to restore the fabled Golden God of Gheekistan to its rightful owners. Our glorious cavalry were also able to capture one of their main officers, who is even now en route to SPIFF headquarters for interrogation and a nice cup of  Russian tea. Our own Comrade Robinski's plan came together well, helped by the fact that the RFF appeared to be in total disarray, its forces scattered around the environs of Shuzzanabad. Our glorious cavalry were able to scatter the recently recruited Imperial mercenary cavalry together with their British counterparts and also capture a mountain gun which was cunningly trying to deploy to deny the SPIFF from liberating the stolen idol. Our reporter N. Parkerski was only able to take three poor quality pictures during the action.

Death Comes To Jimbai

Mayhem was unleashed to day on the humble citizens of Wytawar and Jimbai as Imperialist forces descended on them with the aim of "chastising" the Jakzi of Jimbai for offering refuge to weary travellers, excuse our grasp of the English but we did not believe this to be another word for assassination. Our reporter N. Parkerski was not on hand to catalogue this latest outrage, but the Imperialist press, has this time not attempted to cover up this massacre and murder, you can see their gloating report, minus we may add the murder of innocent civilians, here Tales From Rhanzlistan and very tall tales they are too. As luck would have it True To The East photographer, Davich Bayliski was in the area and took this photo of a local unarmed civilian who had been bayoneted by Imperialist mercenaries.

 The forces of S.P.I.F.F will be willing to offer the local tribes all assistance.

Action At Haztonawar

From today's copy of Правда с Востока comes unfortunate news from the frontier of the exploits of the Soviet  Peoples International Frontier Force and its heroic commander, Comrade General Robinski.

The frontier village of Haztonawar, it has been deserted by the inhabitants due to news that their Imperialist oppressors have sent their mercenary forces to exact their crippling taxation

SPIFF forces move to Haztonwar to counter the advance of the Imperialist aggressors

SPIFF cavalry thunder down the main street, stopping to water their tired horses at the well, whilst doing this they are subjected to murderous fire from the cunningly concealed Imperialist armoured car.

SPIFF infantry move to the right of the town to counter a sneaky flank attack by Imperialist mercenary lackeys

SPIFF artillery deploy to counter the advance of the Imperialist armoured car

Having no stomach to fight against our brave gun crew the Imperialist armoured car attempts to sneak around the flank, but are countered by our brave Siberian troops

Hero of the day was undoubtedly Commander Ivan Ferrarski and his crew of the SPIFF armoured car

Despite causing considerable casualties on the Imperialist mercenary force they refused be ejected from their positions in the town, it can only be concluded that their masters pay them extremely well. With the superior number of SPIFF remaining it would only be time before they would be destroyed, however disaster struck, despite only taking 60% casualties the remaining SPIFF forces were seen to retire. There must be some Czarist elements still at work in the ranks, the ring leaders will be found and justly punished before the next expedition to relieve Rhanzlistan of the Imperial yoke.

The rules we used were Setting the East Ablaze, available from Caliver Books of course. The figures are from our respective collections and feature many manufacturers, Copplestone, Pulp Figures and Brigade Games being prominent amongst them. The buildings are from Mutineer and the vegetation from The Last Valley.
