On January 22nd/23rd of this year, we will mark the 139th anniversary of the iconic battles of the Anglo-Zulu War, Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift.
This will also be the release date for the Perry Miniatures Zulu Warriors sets.
I for one am very excited for this as the Anglo-Zulu War is one of my favourites. Per their Facebook page…
Zulus are coming! Thousands of them…
Well, they are coming and should arrive by January 22nd/23rd (the dates of the Battles of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift). The last step is getting the boxes printed and sent to Renedra for packing, but that’s all underway. The box contains thiryt-eight plastic 28mm Zulus and includes four casualties, all can be assembled as a married unit or an unmarried one by the choice of head. Up to ten figures can be armed with firearms or all with a mix of spear (iklwa), javelin (umkhonto) and club (knobkerry).
The information pamphlet in the box was written by Col Mike Snook and also includes a guide to regimental shield colours. There is also a ‘Free’ figure of Chief Ntshingwayo kaMahole Khoza, one of the Zulu commanders at the Battle of Isandlwana when you purchase three boxes of Zulus.
I am very pleased to have further options when it comes to miniatures in 28mm scale to help add to my Impi. I expect the quality to be as good as any other miniature that they produce.’
Are you ready to face the Horns of the Buffalo?
