Dickie Owen Played Corporal Schiess (Zulu) who has sadly passed away on Tuesday the 7th April 2015
Fri Apr 10, 2015 11:14 pm by ADMIN
Very sad news - my great friend and Zulu actor Dickie Owen passed away on Tuesday night - I have just spoken to his carer who confirmed it. Ironic really - when I spoke to Dickie on Tuesday at lunchtime to tell him I was forwarding fan mail to him, he said he was feeling absolutely fine (and he sounded it). He was a lovely man, very humble, and was really surprised at the amount of people who queued to meet him at our Hammer day signing in November in Westminster - we met fans from all over …

Sir Reginald Coupland
Mon Mar 31, 2014 2:25 pm by Frank Allewell
Sir Reginald Coupland in his book: 'Zulu Battle Piece.' Written in 1940 there are a number of photographs. Does anyone know if these photos are still around? In the book they are not that clear and it would of immense value to get digital copies.
JY / Isandula, any ideas?

I thought he should have a thread as well, given his great esteem. He just announced his retirement from acting due to Parkinson's disease. A real tragedy. He was fairly unknown when he did Zulu Dawn, but in my opinion, he was the …

I registered just before christmas though I've not posted anything yet. Some of the knowledge and information here as been invaluable as I've built an Isandlwana diorama, thank you. Not much of a first post, can't even work out how to load a picture of my diorama but here's a link to the blog I've put all my pics on, hope it meets the high standard of some of the others I've seen here -http://isandlwanadiorama.blogspot.com/

Cheers

Thanks Cisco. Glad you like. Having difficulties uploading - will figure how to do this. I'll get many more pics on the blog at the weekend. I've just put my album online - hopefully you can see it

Steve O it more than meets the standard it stands on it's own. Your painting of the figures and the way you've posed and photograph them have brought them to life. Your depiction of the battle is outstanding with the placement of the wagons and tents along with the individual scenes of the battle are something to behold. Thank you good sir for creating the diorama and sharing it with us.

For some reason I never saw this on its original post.
Incredible is really the only description.

Well done

Bravo is very beautiful

I hope to also post in before the end of the century, but I want to finish everything before or almost, I'm not out of the woods ...

Finally I get there one day, by cons take pictures, it is a real chore for me...

Cheers

Roguefish and Springbok, thanks for the compliments.

Such has been my desire for realism and perfection that I took most of that diorama apart and rebuilt with more and better figures. Still haven't figured out how to post pictures on here but they're all on http://isandlwanadiorama.blogspot.co.uk/ - but note that it's up for auction. It didn't sell at the last auction but up again in March sometime. I need the space before I start building the next one.

Cheers

Steve
