Only thing we need to do before running this again is to locate the figures for the Lake Tanganyika Telephone Raid. What would be good however is to make some better fire arc/turning templates (stiff card not paper) and I think some of the hills that made up the lake side could use a bit of touching up.


Ideally what I'd like to do is add a couple of alternative scenarios for the lake battle-

Mimi & Fifi V the Hedwig (Historical):
For this we'd need the Fifi (like the Kingani but with a different gun and flag) and the Hedwig (would need designing, is a little bigger than the Kingani).

Mimi, Tautau & Fifi V the Hedwig & Pangani (a plausible what if):
For this we'd again need the Fifi and the Hedwig (for the Pangani we can use existing Kingani model).

Hills already have been touched up, as they are part of the Omaha beach build.
