WARLORD: Rorke’s Drift Boxed Set and Zulu Madness!

2 Minute Read
Dec 4 2011

We love a virtuoso idea, taken from fever-dream inception all the way to the shelves…

I’m from Texas, and I understand the love and romantisism of the heroic last stand.  We have the Alamo here, and the UK has the Zulu Wars.  When Warlord Games sent us not one but two sprues labeled:


We thought “what’s the difference”, then studied the sprues for 5 minutes.  THEN I said, “Hey, these guys are up to something…”

Of wifes and hairstyles…

So imagine my excited glee when I saw this baby wheeled out before the crowds:

Rorke’s Drift £150.00


Laser-cut wooden Hospital building with ‘teddy bear fur’ thatch.
Laser-cut wooden Storehouse building with ‘teddy bear fur’ thatch.
Resin Wagon Barricade
Resin stone wall Kraal (4 x 6″ sections)
Resin biscuit box barricades (2 x 6″ sections)
Resin biscuit box/mealie-bag barricades (3 x 6″ sections)
Resin mealie-bag barricades (3 x 6″ sections)
20 plastic multi-pose British Line Infantry
40 plastic multi-pose Married Zulus
Metal mounted Zulu InDuna
Metal Zulu in British jacket firing Martini-Henry rifle
British characters: Lieutenant Chard (Royal Engineers), Lieutenant Bromhead, Colour Sergeant Bourne and Private Hook.  

That’s right, the entire battle including historical terrain in one box, and not only that, but new plastic boxed sets including British troops, and Zulu warriors (both Married and Unmarried) in quantities from reasonable to AWESOME!

More as we get it.  This is gonna be good! “Michael Caine approves of this game”
