A Wargamer’s Guide to The Anglo-Zulu War is a soon to be released book from Daniel Mersey and to be published by Pen and Sword Books. Since the guys over at BoW HQ had a terrific game of Rorke’s Drift recently, I only thought it was appropriate to mention this book.
This book will dive into this time period and the actions that surrounded this conflict. There is a discussion on the makeup of the forces and battles and how to translate them to your game. There is even information on current ranges of miniatures and terrain that is available to bring your games to life.
This book is not a set of rules for playing a game, but a resource to help you choose the right set of rules for you based on the game you would like to play big battles like Isandlwana or skirmishes.
It will serve as a great reference for anyone looking to start in the Anglo-Zulu War as well. It will be available on March 30, 2017, and is up for pre-order now at Pen and Sword.
