All About the Zulu War

11-Sep-2009 We wanted to highlight some amazing work that's been done by two talented people - Mick Farnworth and Steve Dake.





First off, Michael "Mick" Farnworth has created two painting guides to illustrate the steps to paint up your Zulu War British and Zulus quickly and professionally. These two guides are invaluable for those starting out in the period, or the veteran gamer who just wants to see how another "professional" gets it done!

To compliment these amazing guides, we are also posting pictures of an incredible diorama that really illustrates the drama of the Zulu War. This is a bit of action on the mealie bag wall at Rorke's Drift. Take a look!
