My latest regiment completes the Zulu Reserve at Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. At that battle this married regiment was brigaded with the following Zulu regiments:
iNdluyengwe (“The Leopard’s Lair”) – Unmarried regiment.
inDlondlo (“Black Mamba”) – Married regiment.
Uthulwana (“The Dust Raisers”) – Married regiment.
Having not been committed to the main battle, these are they units that made their way to and attacked Rorke’s Drift.
I now have a single solitary Zulu figure left to paint – a Zulu boy herding cattle. I have completed ten 36 figure units which I am pretty happy with, on the whole. If I had my time again I would probably not have based them individually but having had a few games, the sabot bases have presented no real issues. I did find that a tiny bit of Blu-Tac helps.
Time to return to Napoleonics or perhaps some fantasy stuff – not sure yet.
