2021 CHRISTMAS SET - Avenge
Gordon! Figures from the War
Along the Nile

£113.95

Painted in Gloss.


SKU: 2021 - Christmas Set

Description

1885 - General Charles Gordon, dressed for his last stand at Khartoum, faces three of Mahdi's Sudanese forces: A Hadandowa warrior, a Jihadia tribesman and an Emir Chieftain.

Fast-forward to 1898, and a khaki-clad British officer and private stand ready to avenge Gordon at the Battle of Omdurman.

Size 54mm - Price code D

The figures are made in England of quality white metal and meticulously hand-painted in gloss enamel to the highest standards.

A serious revolt had broken out in the Sudan, led by a Muslim religious leader and self-proclaimed Mahdi, Muhammad Ahmad and in early 1884 Gordon was sent to Khartoum with instructions to secure the evacuation of loyal soldiers and civilians and to depart with them.

In defiance of those instructions, after evacuating about 2,500 civilians he retained a smaller group of soldiers and non-military men.

In the months before the fall of Khartoum, Gordon and the Mahdi corresponded; Gordon offered him the Sultanate of Kordofan and the Mahdi requested Gordon to convert to his religion and join him, to which Gordon replied "No!"

Besieged by the Mahdi's forces, Gordon organised a citywide defence that lasted almost a year and gained him the admiration of the British public, but not of the government, which had wished him not to become entrenched.

Only when public pressure to act had become irresistible did the government, with reluctance, send a relief force to the Sudan. It arrived two days after the city had fallen and General Gordon had been killed.

While England echoed to the lament of 'Too late!', the British relief force was withdrawn, leaving the Sudan to the Mahdi and his successor, Abdalli ibn Muhammed, for the next 13 years.

Gordon would finally be avenged on 2nd September 1898, when the overwhelming firepower of General Kitchener's forces decimated the Dervish Army at the Battle of Omdurman.

 Two days later, Kitchener held a memorial service in Khartoum, amidst the ruins of the Govenor's Palace where Gordon had fallen.

The fact her majesty, Queen Victoria, commissioned Richard Caton-Woodville to paint that solemn ceremony, is a measure of Gordon's lasting fame.
