It may be a bit of a pipe dream, but wargaming Rourke's drift has always been something I've hankered after. That dream has come one step closer now, due to the magnificent Warlord Games, in conjunction with Empress Miniatures. They have released 2 affordable box sets of Rourke's Drift. One basic, and one deluxe. The recent increase in availability of plastic minis making this whole thing possible. Packs like this one even maye the running of the Battle of Isandlwana withing the budget of even a small gaming group.
Of course, that still leaves the current lack of people to play against, but like I say, one step closer
