Wargaming the zulu war !
|Subject: Wargaming the zulu war ! Wed Dec 07, 2011 6:55 am|| |
Hello to all
I would like to know who the wargamers on this forum and they contact me so that we can help each, other, a forum is for this...
|Subject: Re: Wargaming the zulu war ! Wed Dec 07, 2011 11:31 am|| |
Pascal, I'm not a wargamer in the practical sense (can't afford the figures), but hugely interested in the subject of wargaming the Zulu War 1879, especially Isandhlwana. What sort of help are you needing ?
|Subject: Re: Wargaming the zulu war ! Wed Dec 07, 2011 2:11 pm|| |
I am a wargame since the late 70's ... and before that I played with toy soldiers, like many little boys, now, I make figurines ...
I could help people to tell them what figures to use, how to transform them as figurines all have incredibleuniformology omissions and with 1 / 56 scale figures, this is obvious and as I make myself figurines, I know what I mean ...
The majoritée of the players do not even realize that their figures are very far from their historical models, they have no knowledge of history and think only game in itself ...
That's why a forum for history buffs like this, the quality of players is much higher ...
Next year you will see the beginning of my collection pictures on this forum, it will help novices, but we can discuss how to play scales, all the questions that poses the wargamers ...
For example next year for my lost momment, I would write a rule free especially for members of this forum, that's why I ask a lot of help for the documentation, as plupard of game rules for all historical periods are unrealistic and too playful and is often the case for the rules of the colonial wars.
In the 80s, I wrote two rules that have been free well loved because I see it as a kind of disappearing, I'm a historical player, the majoritée of the players are players for thr games, they laugh at it realistic or not ...
I love to play Isandhlwana but only the far right of the British troops commanded by Durnford, the smallest unit under his command were 9 men, these are the Buffalo Border Guard, as there must be a figurine of Durnford troops or their auxiliary represents at least nine real men, and their 6000 opponents of the Uves or Ingobamakhosi zulu regiments with a figure for 30 or 60 real wariors would ...
But it can also play at Isandhlwana 1 to 1 without all the troops are represented, of course, just small part of the battle, with at least 13 figures of zulus for each figures of british or their auxiliary , finally we can do 1000 things matter of imagination, with priority being the realism ...

Have a look at the photos on the thread "Isandlwana at Colours 2011". I put on a demonstration wargame of Isandlwana at "Colours 2011" - the wargame show at Newbury a few months back. The firing line from the mountain to the rocky knoll was repreesented on a 1 to 1 scale, both in terms of ground and figure scale.
