The Attack on Morobad: A brief introductionPosted: December 26, 2015
This was a wargame fought by Joseph Morschauser using his gridded wargame rules, and dealt with a British attack on the capital of the Sultanate of Hauser, Morobad. Morschauser described the Sultanate as follows:
French Central Sahara borders the Sultanate … on the west, Italian East Somali borders on the east. Anglo-Sudan is north and British East/Central Somali on the S.E. Directly south of course is the Kingdom of Zulu inhabited by (naturally) Zulu types who have always been friendly to the Hauserians. It’s all imaginary but fun.
I have now completed work on my modular fortress, and can reproduce the Great Wall of Morobad … or at least that section that the British force will attack. I already have written a draft of the rules that I am going to use (my own version of Morschauser’s ‘Frontier’ wargame rules), I have plenty of suitable figures to use to represent both the British and the Hauserians, and I now have the terrain; all I need now is a long enough block of time to fight the battle!
