The days of Africa Orientale Italiana were finally coming to a close in Abyssinia, as South African and Nigerian forces continued a now largely-unopposed advance to Addis Ababa. Italian colonial forces were deserting and surrendering en masse, in embarrassing numbers. On the evening of 28 March, elements of two battalions of the XVII Colonial Brigade began to mutiny.

2019-07-20(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best, Dave Mareske Italian / South African winThe Italians and South Africans worked over my Italians in a very interesting scenario.
2019-01-04(D) Gordon Jupp vs Neil Brunger & Andy Bagley Italian / South African winGreat 3 way game - mutineers took a bit of a pounding and the South Africans were unable to stop the Italians taking the win!
2018-11-27(A) Ruben Rigillo vs Francesco Berucci Lorenzo Marinaro Italian / South African winGreat Three players scenario.
2018-11-10(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Andrea Pagni / Alberto Biserni DrawVery interesting scenario, we drew sides and I got stuck with the mutineers, I overextended but tried to get the Arsenal and its points early on, in my opionin the italian tried to do too much an hadn't enough punch to contrast my initial grip on the arsenal. The CW got easily the rail station and while I wiped out the italian on the 3a map he did the same on the other. In the end CW forgot that mutineers reinforcement come from ALL south side not just 3a and empietied the rail station. So we called it a draw at the beginning of the 4th turn otherwise mutineeres would have won hands down for a CW mistake. I will gladly play it again. IMHO the mutineers has to leave the train station open for the italian player, so that CW and italian battle for that one. Italian has to choose which side to battle, cannot do it against both or he will be crusched. Very nice scenario with high replay value. REccomended.
2017-09-09(A) Stephen dedier vs Reenstra, Dave DrawThe Italians won the scenario. I was the S. Africans. The mutineers were pretty much wiped out but kept me from getting the VP I needed to unseat the Italians. I brought my 2nd force on at the late turn to enter nearer the town. The issue is that it gives time to defend also and you only have one way in so the Italians were setup and waiting. I think entering earlier gives some more options.
