Recently released, Jeff Lapkoff has developed a PC wargame covering the Battle at Rorke's Drift.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It's a much more intimate game than his earlier attempt at the more operational game entitled "Zulu War"

The game can be setup to use miniatures
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

or boardgame counters
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The setup options for the game allow for some replayability
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

If you have an iota of interest in playing out the situation, reacting to various events that could have happened, it's well worth a look - you can download a demo on Jeff's site.

I've begun a series of After Action Reports on the battle played out with the game.

It will probably be about 4 or 5 parts. So I will post links to them here:

Part 1

Finally got Part 3 up! It seems to take ages to get all these screenshots uploaded, sorted and commented upon.

Enjoy.
