Battle of Rorke’s Drift Black Powder participation day
Hosted by Wargames Workshop Northampton
Sunday, 14 April 2019 from 11:00-16:00
The sentries report Zulus to the South West. Thousands of them.
On 22nd and 23rd January 1879 a force of around 150 British and Colonial troops successfully defended the mission station at Rorke’s Drift from attack by a force estimated at between 3000-4000 Zulu warriors.
Come and help defend a stretch of the barricades or try to break through them. All miniatures will be provided on the day (unless you want to bring some of your own) and folks will be on hand to show you how the game works if you’ve never played it before.
Why us, Sarge?
Because we’re ‘ere lad. Nobody else, just us…
Entry for a whole day’s gaming is £3, we’ll have several tables set out for other wargames in addition to the Rorke’s Drift set up. Give me a shout to reserve a table.
