I was wondering if anyone had built new TMWWBK scenarios around the Zulu War (other than the generic ones in the book I mean).

What's "TMWWBK"?

"The Men Who Would be King" -- relatively new Colonial miniatures rules written by Dan Mersey and published by Osprey…

Wow, now that looks awesome.

PS. That tower reminds me a little bit of this other one:

Does anybody make those Highlanders in 28MM?

WarWizard: Is this what you had in mind?

I ran a largis game of TMWWBK with a scenario based on Isandlewana and Rorkes Drift here

I have refought Intombe Drift with them, very intense and enjoyable and similar result.

Mike Target – perfect! Looks great too
I've left a message at that post

Ran Isandlwana scenario using these rules yesterday from the SKIRMISHCAMPAIGNS (Colonial Campaigns) Zulu War Scenario book. It was epic and the rules worked well with 5 players.

Some useful suggestions. We've had several great Mahdist war games using these rules but our Zulus have sat idle since we ditched TSATF.

And I'm keen to give them a run with TMWWBK:
(from our last TSATF game)

ochoin- that looks brilliant!

We are going to try TMWWBK this week, fielding stands of 15mm figures (based in 3s) for each point of unit strength. Hoping to generate 'the look' of a massed battle.

You can see my Zulu Army here:

We used TMWWBK for a Zulu scenario – report here

Very nice Eric!

In the meantime I have now found my Imperial Force too

I guess, between us, we probably have more models of Zulus than there were actual Zulus.

This could be sad, but I'd prefer to describe our efforts as Magnificent!

Zulus…thousands of them!

As much as I would like people to use my BFE II, the free scenario book (at Hotz Art Works) includes several Zulu War scenarios that I think would easily transfer to TMWWBK.
