Years ago there was a scenario in a Wargames Illustrated were Napoleon rallies the Guard after Waterloo and has to take on pursung Brits and Prussians. Anyone remember this issue?

Rearguard, issue 186.

Reproduced in the second edition of Napoleonic Scenarios Volume 1 for "General de Brigade."

There's nothing like that in WI#186. In WI#161 there's an article "Rearguard at Quatre Bras, 19 June 1815" a General de Brigade scenario by Dave Brown that seems to fit the bill.

The Guard is featured but the scenario is based on a 'what if' of Girard's 7th Division (left to recover at Ligny on the 17/18th) being brought across for the fleeing units to rally on.

I have a pdf of the magazine if you can't get a copy but there's not much in the set-up other than a sketch map and OOBs with much of the article being a description of a game fought using the scenario.
