Rorke’s Drift
« on: August 11, 2018, 09:57:18 AM »
Finally completed my Rorke’s Drift set that my wife bought me about 5 years ago.
Played 1st game at Levellers club last night with home made rules.
A few amendments and we will give it another go in about a months time.

That's a very nice layout, Stewart, and the buildings are very striking.

I like the sabots to help manage the "thousands of them" Zulus too.

Would be good to hear how the rules progress.

have you tried using PITTS for these games, Zulu v British?

No, I wanted to reflect the battle instead of the period

The game looked very fine Stewart. Did you recycle the Zulus?
