Magersfontein 1899 - a Boer War AAR

I never used to be very excited by the wargaming potential of the Second Boer War. I suppose I had a superficial image of Boer super-snipers mowing down blundering Brits in a series of dull frontal assaults of limited interest for either player.

Of course the truth is rather different, and I am fortunate to have had my negative illusions pleasantly dispelled by the series of Boer War BBB scenarios crafted by Anton van Dellen. He only writes one every couple of years, but the three so far have all been terrific games: Colenso, Spion Kop, and now Magersfontein.
