Warlord Games are offering 2 supplements in PDF form for the Black Powder games system focusing on the actions during 1879 and 1884!
Zulu! is Warlord Games Black Powder supplement covering the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.
This lavish 92 page supplement chronicles such legendary battles as Isandlwana, Rorke’s Drift and Ulundi. Zulu! brings you not only the background for these momentous battles but other, less well known conflicts as well as rules and force listings – all wrapped up with the usual photographs of beautifully painted miniature and armies!
You’ve seen the silver screen version of events in Zulu and Zulu Dawn – now you can refight these classic engagements on the tabletop…
With Blood on the Nile you can take charge of the British army fighting in the desert, or assume command of the Mahdi’s forces in their struggle against the world’s greatest military power. Along the way, learn about the battles and campaigns of the Mahdist Wars, and the soldiers who served in them.
They charged out of the shimmering desert, thousands of fanatical warriors dressed in white, brandishing fearsome weapons. These were the Mahdi’s men and a British soldier’s worst nightmare. The Mahdi had emerged from the wilderness to lead a rebellion against the Egyptian government in Sudan. His armies overwhelmed the Egyptians and trapped Governor Gordon in Khartoum. The British launched a relief expedition, but it arrived too late. Such an insult to the Empire could not go unpunished, and the British returned to crush the Mahdists. Sudan then came under British Imperial control, but, like shifting sands, history could have turned out very differently.
