A MeG test game - Hausa Kingdoms vs Ayyubid Egyptian

A long trip for me, two streets across, and up the stairs for Wednesday's game...
*WARNING -- MAY CONTAIN UNPAINTED FIGURES*

A learning game to introduce Neil from the Leighton Buzzard Wargames Club to the wonders of MeG.
Neil had raided his figure collection (he is a pretty decent ADLG player) for a mix of Marmalukes and Sudanese that would for a rather beautiful Ayyubid army. Some of his figures are on ADLG double bases, but with MeG it matters not. Saladin would be proud as his forces cross the Sahara to exert their authority over his rebellious vassals of the Hausa kingdoms.

Two cavalry heavy armies meet outside a small village on the plains of Nigeria. An area of scrub on the left, a village to the top right, and an area of brush in the centre. The first deal underway. I position my foot in front of the village after outscouting Neil by a mighty 10%! I have already picked up my mediocre generals cards (right) and on the left my ally decides to comply. Phew!

First moves. Neil…

Oh man, it's like getting really heavy man!

Invasion Earth, the forces gather.

Sergeant Hall leaned back against the stone wall, taking a long slug from his watter bottle. He threw the creature into the bushes, wiped the bottle and took a drink. A dust cloud approached the remains of the platoon, scouts shouted 'Friends' and men stood their guard down slightly. Hall staggered to his feet, exhausted by the recent fighting. "Who is it?" "Heavy dragoons." "Eh... there's none within a hundred miles of here. Who are they?"  Hall walked out of the shade and looked, then swore under his breath, he knew who they were, magnificent, but possibly unsuited for fighting Martians, the Shropshire Yeomanry! Farmers, lawyers and gentry...  Their Sergeant was well known to Hall, mostly from mess dinners, a twenty year veteran with the Buffs, who had inherited a portion of money and had retired up to Salop, Lovell had whipped his section into shape in recent years, this would be more like it!
