And so the game begun in the last installment continues.
|On turn Three, British reinforcements arrive like the Riders of Freakin' Rohan. On the British left, a platoon of infantry and some irregular cavalry.|
|And on the right, some NNC and a pair of field pieces. In retrospect, two field guns are crazy dangerous.|
|Zulus on the ramparts!|
|OK, guys. Look badass. Seriously, is that the best you can do?|
|After two unsuccessful charges, one Zulu impi breaks through. Lt. Bromhead is killed by an assegai thrown at short range.|
|Well, don't they make a tempting target, lads?|
|The infantry screen the cavalry... Given their firepower, though, the men on horses aren't really needed.|
As an added wrinkle, I'm giving the Zulu side the option to pull back and regroup, bringing all dead units back into the fight. Zombie Zulus! The downside is that this will allow the Brist to regroup anywhere they want inside the compound. We'll see how this pans out.
