YOWIE! This is a rush! A tiny little scenario that packs a big punch. It’s a Fixed Force (Set Piece) battle between outnumbered British riflemen and every Zulu spearman in the world. The British position is protected by palisades which the Zulus chew through like a wood shredder. The author has included two special AI files to make the Zulus a little more aggressive.
Rules of Engagement: Defender wins by killing 240 attackers. Attacker wins by killing 50 defenders.
Hints: Zulus used two types of spears, the throwing assagai and the stabbing assagai. They can throw the assagai over the palisade wall so you have to take the throwers out, as well as the other ones who are ripping your wall apart Try to keep the Doctor (priest) with you as you fall back from one position to the next.. And don’t forget to lock that gate behind you.
