Isandlwana game at WMMS 2010
« on: March 22, 2010, 04:09:04 PM »
Hi,

Here’s few photos (taken by Martin of Zero Gravity Products) of the Isandlwana game at WMMS 2010 (well hopefully they are the photos – its my first attempt with Photobucket…….)

They show the British defence of the ‘rocky ridge’ (supported by the Royal Artillery), the Natal Native Mounted Contingent (supported by G Coy 2/24th) and finally a shot of the table from the Zulu end, showing the British firing line

 










The figures are old Foundry (with a lot of conversions for officers etc).

Cheers

Looking good, what scale are the figures?

Yeah, I always like to know who won in Isandhlwana games.
 :)

The scenario that gave the World the "recycled Zulus"  mechanic    lol


Very nice pictures,  thanks.


I've played  it in 1 to 10 ratio (that was still a big  number of Zulus, movement trays of 40 figures, 2 to 8 trays in a unit ,   companies of 8-10 Brits  with officer and bugler,   etc.)

 
Reigning USTA Florida, and National 50+ Singles Champion  (tennis)  TWO Time Florida 50+ Singles Champion!  Just won State 2019!

Hi,

The game was palyed - althought not to a conclusion.

I can't stand display 'games' that are set out and nothing moves.....thats a diorama.

"The scenario that gave the World the "recycled Zulus"  mechanic" - you just need a set of rules which does not need the removal of Zulu casualties.......

Wow your big Isandlwana sounds impressive, I have a mate who does Rorke's Drift 1:1 - he's got a permenant set up at his house.


Cheers

I fear it might be possible.....

All his collections are on an epic scale - he is planning a massive Isandlwana using 80 man companies and (literally) thousands of Zulus.

This looked awesome.

I saw it and bent over to my girlfriend and said 'Is it sad that I know it's Islandlwhana because of that bloody great lump of rock?'...

She replied 'Yeah, now stop dribbling over the poor man's table!'.  lol
