Hi Again

I posted a couple of pictures of our first zulu war wargame a couple of months ago, As I said in the post im working on recreating the battle of rorke,s drift in 1:56 scale or 28mm the "hollywood" and historical versions of the battle, so as to show the progress with the project I have started a small blog.

http://zuluwarminiature.blogspot.com/

I will of course post pictures on the forum when it is all finished, athough given the progress I have made in the last year it may be another year till it is all finished.

All the Best Terry

Many thanks for the kind words Gents.

Im planing on making a start on the first of the main buildings this week. Im looking at doing the storehouse first, I drew up a floor plan a few months back using the book refrences I have, but I would like to check it against other sources. Are there any good floor plans for the storehouse anyware online ?

Firstly A belated thank you to Chard 1879 for the link, I logged in to reply the other day but I got called away before I could post a reply.

The1stLt thank you for the feedback much appreciated.

Gentlemen Where would be the best place to ask the litle questions I have regarding the building of the drift game ?
im talking about the type of stuff that crosses my mind but Im unable to find the information in my limited refrence material.

for example while building the storehouse, I was woundering If they had cleared out all of the stores suplies for the building of the defences, or if the arival of the Zulu Amabutho halted this?

I proberly have this info someware in the books I have and have missed it.

all the best terry

Hi Teld.
The storehouse was full of supplies as far as I'm aware , so much so there were supplies stacked outside the storehouse .

thanks for the Info 90th, Yes I think I will have to make up a large stack of extra meelie bags. they can then be moved from outside the storehouse IE representing the pile left there before the start of the building of the defences, and moved into the storehouse after the defences and redoubt are built ,thereby representing what was left over apon compleation of the building of the defences.

90th Im afraid I dont actully have a figure for the amount of time spent on the model but I have used all my free time on it for the last 10 days and have put in at least two hours a day on most days and more when I could.

looks like I have more work to do on the model anyway's I was looking at another drawing I found and It seems I have missed off the buttress on the rear of the building Rolling Eyes

I will have to see if I can still add them without ruining the look of the model.
