See the rocket in flight in an early picture! That is a terrific effect……….

Awesome looking game with some nicely painted figures. Love all the French Lancers and Prussians. (Prussian fan).
Wonderful place to have the game and great AAR, thanks for posting.

Glorious stuff.

I have fought 3 refights of Waterloo over the last couple of months…we are aiming to have another refights on Thursday but that may not be possible…and each time Napoleon has lost.

Really amazing stuff, I believe you could not have recreated the battle any better.

Great game in an outstanding venue mate – good effort!

Black Powder definitely lends itself to this scale of game.

I also sympathise with the French skipper's decision to try something different – historical tactics we have found in our practice games just leads to early French defeat. Which is a valuable historical lesson in itself – by the time Blucher was allowed to regroup and outflank, and knowing that the Allied contingents could fight every bit as well as the Brits, attacking a superb defensive position when outnumbered and outflanked is a fool's game!

I hope to blog about the Aussie Waterloo 200 mega game soon – just wading through 100's of lovely photos right now!

I was hoping to be there on Sunday but didn't make unfortunately. Looked amazing, especially that rocket!

Awesome stuff.

Another blog at

Having a BFG in a 19th Century Gentlemen's Club with lots of Wellington/Waterloo paintings certainly helped the atmosphere.
