The main assault



Bitter hand-to-hand combat on all fronts



Many Zulu inside the parameter



Much british losses






Shortly before the British are overrun, the fortieth Zulu succeeds in eliminating the main attack



That was close. Another round of close combat would have been fatal for the defenders.

The rules worked. Little things have to be changed until the rules are perfect.

I hope the game report was exciting and fun

Sorry for my bad English - I gave my best  and had help from the online translator

Continuation of the construction of the plate:
A slightly hilly part is being built.


Furthermore, a mountain range will be added to the area of ​​the station
so that I can also use the area for other games.

Fantastic work Peter, glad to have caught this, it's really inspiring.

Good for you keeping at it.

Wow, Peter, great idea and great execution!  Building an alternate terrain piece to fill the open space you created for the Rorke's Drift buildings shows you can do labor intensive custom work to make a historical refight game the best it can be, and still find ways to use it for totally different scenarios.  Very well done!
