Army Lists for In The Heart of Africa 2nd edition - Colonial Africa rules - Chris Peers

Regular price $24.95

These lists are designed for use with the 2nd Edition of “In The Heart Of Africa”. They are intended mainly for armies in the size range which we recommend for campaign and single player games with “In The Heart Of Africa” – in other words, between 300 to 720 points, depending on the army and the scenario.

The chronological scope of the rules is approximately from 1860 to 1899, although many of the armies included could still be used into the early years of the 20th century. Geographically, they are intended to cover what might be thought of as the classic “Darkest Africa” of the explorers – the region in which European influence followed the pattern of rapidly accelerating exploration from about 1860 onwards, followed by an equally rapid phase of military conquest from 1885 to around 1900. The southern boundary of this region follows the Zambezi, Cubango and Cunene Rivers. In the north it is roughly demarcated by a line running from the mouth of the Tana to the northern end of Lake Rudolf, across to the Nile to take in the far south of the Sudan, then following the hills that mark the watershed of the Congo Basin, and finally south-west to the Muni River on the Atlantic coast. Of course, the lists do not include every possible fighting force to be found within this vast region.
