This captured Egyptian Krupp gun is manned by three Egyptian prisoners. The fourth man pictured here is a Hadendowah warrior. He is motivating the gun crew with the help of his large hardwood (mimosa) throwing club.

Unlike the Imperial forces, Dervish war bands receive only one leader (sheikh) per unit. This can prove problematic if their leader is killed by a lucky shot or in melee. All morale checks for leaderless native bands become very hard to pass. This makes the three tribal leaders very handy in deed. Mounted on horse back they can quickly join any leaderless war bands, and thereby boost their chances of passing future morale checks.
