ArmChairGeneral: Rorkes Drift VSF Final




Yesterday we played Rorke's Drift all the way through to its completion! My playtesters helped me add some interesting elements to this alternate scenario including a native cannon battery that was helpful in defeating the steambots of the British. Here are some pictures. The British were played by my Dad and the Zulu Impis were played by Ray.

This introductory scenario for When the Navy Walked on Rorke's Drift will be available soon for download from Wargame Vault.com! As always, I welcome comments and feedback.

The initial positions of both forces.



The Zulu UDloko Iklwa sneaking up behind the kitchen and ovens. The British line this part commanded by Bromhead is ready and reinforced with a steambot.

Check out the rest of the battle over on Armchairgeneral1!
