Also a thing to remember about Africa is that the French had a huge build-up in Senegal. That would make them players in any fight to the south since anything coming from Europe will have to go through or very near their possessions (they control most of North Africa). According to some figures that I saw, they had a couple of Squadrons posted in Senegal IRL in the 1930s.

Perhaps not too relevant to the subject but interesting and peripheral to this thread, a picture of the French Army Fort @ Timbuktu in Mali, West Africa, 1933. . .

Mali as a semi-independent Francophone republic with a major Legion garrison in Timbuktu to protect the Libraries.
Yeah, that is some good stuff folks...

Guys,
Tournament season has started for me X-Wing and A Game of Thrones. I probably won't have the time to work on Africa
for a while, however, if you have anymore good ideas or Thom, the muse strikes, feel free to light up the thread with
your posts. I hope to be back working on Africa after Gencon.

Thanks,
Tony

Good luck at GenCon! I had the honor or attending in 2004 and it was one of highlights of my life.

Just to share my results:
I took second place in our Tennessee Regional with a 2 Falcon build. I was undefeated until the final game.
Best place I ever finished in a tourney.

Thanks for the well wishes.

Tony
