The Other Partizan 2010: Kings of the Sun

SL375488

This game was one of the most interesting and colourful at Partizan. The figures and buildings, especially the pyramids, were brilliant. The period was slightly unusual.

Kings of the Sun tells the saga of Mayan refugees in search of settlement. After experiencing savage defeat in battle the leaders of an ancient mayan tribe decide to escape across the Gulf of Mexico to build a new community on the coast. However the land they have chosen as their home has already been claimed by a hostile tribe of Native Americans and their enigmatic leader Black Eagle, who refuses to withstand intruders.

This game was put on by The Bunker at http://www.thebunkergames.com which, at its Bunker Wargame Holiday Centre regularly puts on wargames events and is now offering single wargaming sessions.

I believe the game is based on a dreadful movie of the same name - stars Yul Brynner but that doesn't help because he made some aweful movies.
