IHMN: The Mad Mahdi's Navy

Fifteen Beja on a dead man's chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of holy water that the Mahdi washed in...

Upon hearing that the 'Turks' had a new steamboat the Mad Mahdi commissioned his own naval force by 'acquiring' a trading dhow from the river Arabs.

The model is scratchbuilt in plasticard from a plan off the Major General Tremorden archived colonial warfare site.

It will carry about twenty Dervishes at a pinch provided they don't whirl too much.

The Mahdist flag.
