This Saturday saw myself and a group of friends get together to re-fight the battle of Waterloo. We were using the Black Powder Rules from Warlord games and 1/72nd (20mm) mainly plastic models numbering about 3,000 figures per side.
Here’s some pictures of the game.

The Prussian 4th Corps arrive but face a mass of French Cavalry which are screening the French Infantry in Plancenoit.
The Prussians push forward but are held by the French Cavalry.
We had a cracking days gaming, with the French holding all three key areas (Plancenoit, Hugoumount and La Haye Saint) at the end of the game to take the win. It was closer than it sounds with both Hugoumount and La Haye Saint holding out until the final turn of play and the Dutch/Belgium reserves still to be committed.
