The Rorke’s Drift! battle-set may well be packed to the gunnels with superb terrain and miniatures but our Horns of the Buffalo set takes things to a different level! We’ve added to the contents of the Rorke’s Drift! set with loads more bespoke terrain to give you the ultimate Rorke’s Drift wargaming experience! You won’t want to miss out on this!
Below you’ll find images of some of the contents of this amazing set including Empress Miniatures’ Rorke’s Drift historical character pack containing Victoria Cross winners Lt. Chard (Royal Engineers), Lt. Bromhead, Colour Sergeant Bourne and Private Hook which are included in the Rorke’s Drift boxed set. In the Horns of the Buffalo you get these as well as representations of the characters from the film Zulu…
A key feature of the defence of Rorke’s Drift are the barricaded wagons – you’ll find two of these in the Horns of the Buffalo set!
With thousands of Zulus bearing down on them the British soldiers could make good use of the outhouse…
The Horns of the Buffalo collectors edition of Rorke’s Drift contains the cookhouse and three ovens.
On of the most impressive elements of the Horns of the Buffalo set is this two part mealie-bag redoubt – another iconic element of the British defences.

The ‘Horns of the Buffalo’ collectors set includes the Rorke’s Drift boxed set and builds on it with even more Anglo Zulu War goodies! In addition to more barricades and walls we also include broken down walls to represent the second Kraal. Also included is one of the key features of the defence of Rorke’s Drift – the mealie-bag redoubt!
Plastic Bell tents and wooden fencing lends more weight to this being a military encampment. For added flavour of a working settlement we have several metal animals in this set – 6 African cattle, a dead metal horse and, of course, a dog (Pip the Terrier).
What kind of Rorke’s Drift set would this be without the characters from the 1964 film ‘Zulu’? We’ve included metal representations of the actors portraying Bromhead, Chard, Bourne and Hook.
There are even more resin additions to the camp – we have the cookhouse and it’s ovens as well as the WC outhouse. Cap this off with a metal water cart and wooden Boer wagon and you have everything you need bar the African sun and the chants of the impis!
