I attampted to adapt the Pony Wars rules over to a Zulu game. Have a look here for a detailed, sort of, battle report. Thanks for having a look.

Looks like it was a great game.

Very nice. How did the rules work out?

Rdfraf Supporting Member of TMP20 Mar 2022 7:41 a.m. PST

That's perfect!

I've used the rules for the Boxer Rebellion as well!

Loved the game and am VERY interested in your tweaks to the rules!

That. Is. Brilliant!

Now, I'm scrambling around my game room looking for my copy.

I never would have thought to have done that.

Thanks for sharing this!


PaulRPetri21 Mar 2022 5:37 a.m. PST

Thank you Eric. I changes the rules quite a bit. I have made a PDF copy of them if you are interested in what I have changed. Thanks for the kind comments.

John Leahy Supporting Member of TMP21 Mar 2022 9:15 a.m. PST

John the PDF is on the way. I hope it is of some value to you.

epturner Supporting Member of TMP21 Mar 2022 5:34 p.m. PST

Please, if you wouldn't mind.

I'm having a V8 moment thinking I should have used them for Zulus years ago. Maybe I could for my Sudan Wars…



SgtGuinness Supporting Member of TMP21 Mar 2022 7:29 p.m. PST

I really like to see what changes you've made as well. Please email me.

I have sent emails with the rules to all the above who requested them. Just bear in mind they are the ramblings of a mad man!


PaulRPetri22 Mar 2022 7:03 a.m. PST

Eric there does exist a set of rules for the Sudan, The Sand sof The Sudan, that were based on Pony Wars and created by Peter Gilder to use at his Holiday Wargame center.


I have them but havent tried them out yet.

John Leahy Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2022 1:52 p.m. PST

On Military Matters carries them in the USA.

Thanks for everything Paul!

PaulRPetri23 Mar 2022 5:45 a.m. PST

As Paul noted, Gilder lifted the Pony Wars approach for his Sudan game that was then revised and fleshed out as Sands of the Sudan. Carlo did a great job of this and I could imagine a Zulu war version would be very easy to develop -- probably easier than starting with Pony Wars itself.
