Dear All,


This Sunday the 18th, the Wollongong Wargamers commemorated the 202nd anniversary of that most decisive of battles with a Blucher moderated game.
The thrilling story is recounted here:

Great photos and AAR – My group did Waterloo with Blucher on the 200th with a very historical outcome as the Prussians overran the flank.

Thanks Guys! Yes those verdamnt Prussians will keep turning up on the flank…

Excellent scenario and write up, many thanks for organising. The corps allocation to each player and single momentum die worked well, providing a fast-moving and compelling multiplayer game. Objectives and table size were spot on.

Great AAR NFWS! Good looking game.
Did you not include Lobau's corps for the French? If you didn't include them why did you give the French the Young Guard, to counter the arrival of the Prussian 1st Corps?
Just a couple of questions for the scenario design.

Hi Wrgm1,

Thanks. Yes we omitted both the French VI Corps and the Prussian IV Corps as our table would not admit of the Plancenoit engagement. Last year we found that it just turned into 2 seperate games, and with our dearth of players just left it out…

Makes sense to me. We found that in our games the Guard Light Cavalry was used against the Prussian IV corps rather than the Allied army which seriously hindered the Prussian attack!

Yes that was more or less our plan – and of course in reality if the French had advanced West to defend the Lasne defile – well…
