Congo: Forthcoming rules by Studio Tomahawk





Having played the enjoyable Muskets and Tomahawks rules for the first time at Eric the Shed's last year I was very excited to discover that Studio Tomahawk are working on a Darkest Africa set of rules called Congo.  They are using this excellent looking set up using Foundry figures to promote it on their forum.

Skirmish wargaming does seem to be all the rage at present and Darkest Africa figures were some of the first metal figures I bought back in 1998 (I think).  Very excited about this as I think I have nearly all the Foundry figures and have even, unusually, painted a lot of them.

Thanks for posting this! It has been a while since our group has done some darkest Africa.

They look interesting. I like the idea of exploration games with a small number of figures and models. It would tie-in well with a larger military campaign.
