I got these rules in September and have been itching to give them a try.
"The Men Who Would Be Kings" from Osprey Games.
The book suggests Scenario A "Just passing By " as the first game.
In preparation for this game I had to once again dig out my Brits and Zulu, which I have not used in about a 5 years. I thought I had enough painted to run it right away, but alas I didn't. I had to paint my NNH. Which I proceeded to do in a few evenings, and since I was working on the mounted guys, I figured I should finish basing the dismounted figures which have been waiting 5+ years for me to do so.
Then I dugout 3 units of Redcoats. They needed a bit of repainting, as the paint had flaked off where the left hand grasps the rifle, on almost every figure. That done I then resealed the touched up areas in white glue.
And I finished re basing the dismounted NNH figures.
Then it was dealing the Zulu. opened 6 baggies of them and chose the best 16 figures from each bag.
I noticed as I was dealing with the figures that the bases are really light (they are just #26 Illustration board) but I don't want to re base every figure (over 400 Zulu and nearly 100 Britons), I grabbed a couple of my Magnetic Sheets, and stuck the figures to them, it gives the bases just enough weigh.
|Ignore those 6mm Napoleonics, they have nothing to do with Zulu wars.|
