PostSubject: Zulu the Movie - Rorkes Drift Layout   Wed Sep 21, 2016 10:07 am

Good Morning All

This is my first post on this wonderful Forum. I am both a keen historian and avid wargamer. In particular I have always had a fascination with the Anglo Zulu War.

I was wondering if anybody can help me? I am aware that the layout of the Rorkes Drift in the movie was different to the real battlefield. Can anybody point me in the right direction where I can find the ground layout and building design of the ZULU movie set.

Rather than build the 'actual' Drift ion 28mm I thought it would be fun to create the movie set for my Wargaming.

PS if you are interested in seeing the progress so far on the figures head over to my blog Shed Wars - I cant post a link for the next seven days but if you google it you will find the site. The Zulu tab or Colonial Wars tab will throw up all the links


Thank you in advance...

Eric the Shed

Eric, just saw your post and I'm sorry no one has accommodated you. There is possibly no "blueprint" of the movie set available but may I suggest, why not construct it historically correct?? There is a plethora of information about this site. In addition, the current site's chapel is built almost on top of the store house and Witt's new house was built over the actual hospital ruins. Please reconsider your options as these places are hallowed ground and it would be honorable to try and "get it right!"
