My newly updated blog for supplies and painting tips gleaned from the web and my general surplus miniature selling page click on the link to take you to the new blog.

I now have joined the electronic age and have paypal and EBay auctions.


This is a blog I set up to chronicle my adventures in wargaming overseas in Scotland in 2011 and to continue following particular games overseas that I enjoyed with my new friends in Edinburgh. I look forward to finally updating this with more pics soon.

Zulu's Rorkes Drift - Rick OBrian (the Flag Dude) & Kennesaw Mountain Gamers

this wargame was sponsored by KENNESAW MOUNTAIN GAMERS - (War of Spanish Succession Gamers) -COWS OF FILET - and a special thank you to Rick OBrian (the Flag Dude)for a great game and Continental Airlines for getting him home in time to host the game.

And two hours sleep only saw him forget a couple of minor items.

next to the board in this pic is an excellent mock-up of the interior of the hospital (we skipped that part of the game) and abstracted it out by having two trays of Zulus stationed against the hospital for 5 or 6 turns. Rick OBrian mentioned making the hospital fight a skirmish game by itself on a larger scale. I hope Rick emails me a pic of the mock-up so I can add it into this post

  1. This looks like a great game. One thing though, I would love to play a scenario where the NNC and NNH were not chased off as they historically were by the zulus. Also, the guns weren't left in Johannesburg but at Isandlawana where the zulus slaughtered the British central column.
