Waterloo Birthday Bash.

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.

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.

Cheers, Steve.

    Hi there,
    it took about 4 hours to set up Friday evening as we had to sort out each of the units and where they should be, putting away only took about 3/4 of an hour, many hands make sort work as they say plus the joy of plastic figures :).
