Chain of Command Abyssinia: Eritrean & Somali Irregulars Army List

The next army list starts to detail some of the tribal forces of The Abyssinian Crisis. There were long standing feuds and inter-tribal warfare amongst the Eritrean and Somalian tribes that inhabited the Horn of Africa. They fought as much amongst themselves as against their Ethiopian neighbours and many warriors flocked to the Italian colours to serve, but more likely, settle old scores.
These forces include, but are not limited to, the highly regarded Somalian Dubat forces, the opportunistic forces of Sultan Olol Dinle, notable Azebo Galla cavalrymen and the Spahis di Libya, led by the enigmatic Amedeo Guillet.
These warriors start to give a look at how Chain of Command:The Abyssinian War handles irregular forces which adds a distinctly colonial feel to the period and provides much variety for those Chain of Command players fielding otherwise conventional forces up to now.

I set up the terrain as you can see below. This isn’t the precise location where
