Arcane Scenery and Model Supplies presents:
Rorke’s Drift Hospital (15mm)
The building will be supplied as a flat pack kit
W235 x D145 x H60mm (approx.)
The hospital was fully enclosed by the perimeter of the mission and was the focal point for the first Zulu assault. During the battle, 10 patients who were well enough to fire a rifle plus six privates were responsible for its defence. Fighting ebbed and flowed throughout the hospital with the British using bayonets and rifle butts against the Zulus’ sharp assegais.
Realising they had to withdraw, the surviving hospital defenders and patients eventually escaped by exiting the building through a small window. At that point, they had to fight their way through the Zulus creating a savage melee through the abandoned courtyard to the safety of the opposite end of the defensive perimeter.
The hospital was comprised of 11 rooms, had loopholes for rifles and a thatched roof.
Supplied unassembled and unpainted in kit form with full instructions.
This pack is just one of our range of building kits suitable for 15mm wargaming and for dioramas. The buildings come flat packed and can be assembled and ready for use in no time at all. They are made of laser cut 2mm and 3mm MDF which has been been textured with floorboards / planking and tiles where appropriate. The MDF wood is unpainted. The roofs are removeable to allow you to place models inside the buildings.
We suggest that you use PVA glue to permanently fix the building together. Painting is optional, we think that a quick wash of ink will be enough for most gamers but of course, you can add more detail if you prefer.
If you need glue for your models, I sell Revell Contacta Adhesive, Revell Professional polystyrene glue and a range of super glues and other adhesives. They can be found in the ‘Arcane scenery’ and ‘Glues, Fillers, Paints and Tools’ categories of my shop.
