    With a rapidly growing membership in recent months the DWG has turned to running bi-monthly meet ups in January, February and March, with a corresponding jump in the games we feature from our normal three to four to double those numbers.

    One of the games to feature in last month’s second club gathering was Nathan’s splendid Rorke’s Drift and 28mm Zulu War collection.

    We again used Chris Pagano’s ‘The Boys from Isandlwana’ rules which work perfectly for this scenario.

    If you would like to see how the game played, just follow the link to the club blog.

    Thanks for your comments chaps, glad you enjoyed seeing the game.

    Nathaniel – I believe the rules are now available on Wargames Vault.

    Cheers

    that would be an incorrect assumption. these rules are nowhere to be found on the web, and searching for them only brings me your blog and news about a swiss cheese pervert who shares the name of the author of these rules.
    do you have a link or anything.. how did you get them?

    i am very curious about the morale aspect to the rules so id like a copy for sure

    Ok, that assumption was based on someone leaving a comment on the blog saying they had found them there.

    The rules were a freely available set a few years ago and the author dropped a comment on the club blog the last time we used them. That original free set are the ones we use in the club.

    Great looking game. Did you recycle Zulus?

    Thank you. No the regiments were organised as units so we could determine their break point for casualties.

    There were a lot of Zulus!
