So What is Project Mahdi?

I remember being introduced to colonial wargaming many years ago and have particularly fond memories of Science vs Pluck.  So when, I spotted the range of excellent figures from the Perrys, I decided to take the plunge.

This blog is intended to capture the development of this particular wargaming project beginning with the Suakin campaign of 1884.

Along with my other project blogs - Project Marlborough, Project Mutiny and Project Montrose - this is something of an experiment. At its heart it's somewhere for me to report progress, however slow, on the project but also to capture material I am gathering for scenarios and actually gaming the period. It's not, I hasten to add, a substitute for posts on The Wargame Shed but rather to complement them. I hope that provide something of use to others interested in this interesting period.
