Waterloo 2015, Black Powder.

After the fun of my Waterloo Birthday bash last year and what with it being the 200th anniversary of the great battle as a club special event we decided to run the big game again this year. This time around we played about 6 turns over the day with the French again taking the victory on the last dice roll of the game.
Here’s some pictures of todays action.

I’m afraid that’s all the pictures I took but as you can see it was one epic game, a big thanks to everyone who helped out and I really hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did.

Cheers, Steve.

    Thanks also to you and Simon for all the hard work in organising the event.

    It was an epic day in every sense of the word. The table groaned under the weight of thousands of figures , mostly provided by Steve and Simon, and looked awesome. The battle played smoothly and control of the key objectives changed hands till it came down to the final dice throw. Sadly from the Allies point of view I threw low but the French were worthy winners. A great day’s war gaming played with goodwill, good spirit and good humour but all involved. Thanks to all concerned for a brilliant day!

  3. I echo Mike’s comments above, James and I loved the whole day and really appreciate the effort that everyone organising put in. How fantastic to replay the great battle on the double centenary. Many thanksπŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€
