Good Afternoon Folks

Yesterday we refought the battles of Isandlwana and Rorkes drift which were even more poignant for the fact that it was the 138th anniversary

I have posted up part 1 – The Isandlwana aar on my blog and part 2 will follow soon.

nearly 1000 28mm figures on show.
Lots of pictures etc

Wow!! The game gives a good Impression of the steamroller effect of the Zulus..and with such Odds Im not suprised the cavalry left the field.

Yikes, I couldn't even carry that many Zulus!
Impressive…doesn't quite do the spectacle justice!

Well done!

You should be proud of yourself. This is magnificent.

Wowee! Your game looks truly spectacular!

I was honored to participate in a smaller Isandlwana game here in Austin, Texas, also played on Sunday, Jan. 22. A TMP buddy has a very impressive collection of 25mm Zulus and Brits, so he hosted a game at his house. Our game wasn't an exact historical simulation. At least 400 painted minis were involved. The Zulus won, but got hurt bad, not unlike the historical battle.
