15nn ACW buildings, and sandbags from a toy soldier tub from smiths toys, i knew the sand bags would be useful

there are a few options for figures on juniorgeneral.org so i chose the top down versions,

i used a spare green mat to cover my beach on my table. hills i bought from ebay.

the garden and road is latex,i got the figs from juniorgeneral.org great free paper minis, i decided on topdown

got my book for a guide

after finding my scissors, I got the figures cut, and have setup the game, I bought some red and green dice, as I did not realise the rules needed so many.

after a test play, I have amended the starting british units to 12, and the zulus to 24 units. the british can target any zulu on the table because i read the british had excelent medium range shots

as i understand it, the battle ended up being about 150 brits against 3000 to 4000 zulus, but the firepower gave brits more combat power, the 4 pips on the 12 dice = 48 so that’s 1 pip per 3 men, the zulu’s 1 pip about 32 men. its aprox (3200 / (24×4)). I need to move the sandbags inside the compound a bit as its to close to hospital. I am assuming the brits always had a target, so they can fire at any unit on the battlefield.

done about 14 test turns, to see how it went, the brits took a lot a hits, after the zulu’s got into the compound the got an extra hit, so brits were forced to second defence line just like the real battle, new zulu attacks have fizzled bad dice for the zulu’s . but it looks bleek for the brits lots in hospital, not many pips left.
