Rorke's Drift, BFE style

At the local con I presented the BFE scenario of Rorke's Drift.  If I may be so bold, I thought it worked a charm.  The Zulus came very close to winning in spite of terrible dice luck in shooting (limited anyway) and having a terrible time breaking into the buildings.  One funny moment was when the Zulus managed to set fire to the hospital and then having another unit impetuously attempting to break in to the same building.  They failed, thankfully for them!

I think the players had lots of fun and I was appreciative of the good spirited play.  It makes such difference.  I have had the odd experience of preparing a game -- with all the terrain construction, painting time and costs incurred -- only to find a player or two simply grumpy, competitive, and rude.  I will be honest, I sometimes have wondered why I bother....

Thankfully, this is rare and here the experience was really positive.

Here are some randomly ordered piccies:


  1. Wonderful collection of figures and terrain. Looks like a great game to have been a participant.

  2. Thanks for the comment, John. Sent you an email, but not sure it got through. Your blog is pure inspiration, so a positive comment from you is high praise, indeed.

  3. Evening Chris,
    No email but not to worry.

  4. That is an honour. And a motivation to post more.
