I will try and cover the main events as best I can but I am limited by what I have in my collection of figures and terrain and also by the size of my table, which is 7' x 5'. There will be quite a few inaccuracies, reasons as mentioned above and also because I have tried to portray scenes both historically and from the film 'Zulu', so please don't take this little project to seriously as it has just been a bit of fun, putting the different aspects of this hobby together and sharing it with you on this blog.
