« on: February 03, 2023, 01:49:46 PM »
The 2nd game of the January's 2nd Club meeting was a recreation of the Battle of Rorke's Drift fought using "The Boys from Isandhlwana" https://devonwargames.blogspot.com/2023/02/rorkes-drift-28th-january-2023-156th.html

Here are some warm up pics

Great battle report!  I'm sure her majesty's men would have won out.  Barely, maybe, but won!

We played a Rorke's Drift(ish) scenario this August past using Fistful of Lead: Bigger Battles.  British marksmanship vs. Zulu "up close and personal", it was.  The Brits squeaked out wins both time we played it, but it they were both near-run things...
