The last time we saw Mr. Torben Klein of Denmark was his submission of the Battle of Hasting's diorama when King Harold got the arrow in the eye. This time it's more British history, in South Africa.
"The battle of Rorke's Drift, Natal, Jan.22, 1879. The diorama shows the barricade just in front of the hospital on Rorke's Drift where the British repels the vast numbers of zulu warriors. Figures are the ESCI set."
Many thanks to Mr. Klein for sending in this contribution.
(Webmaster's notes: Well, finally a diorama for which ESCI made it's figures for. There are a couple of dramatic touches which Mr. Klein seems to have a flair for. There is the discharge out of the gun and the poor guy right in front getting the full effect of it. And there is the poor guy with the spear sticking 6 ft out of his chest. Since ESCI didn't include this guy in the set, he's a conversion, but of what? Your local video store would probably never stock Zulu, but with the wonders of the Net, I bought a copy a while ago. Quite dramatic and stars a fairly youthful Michale Caine. Highly recommended.)
