Hello all ran my 28mm Waterloo game again at KulbaCon (previously ran it at DundraCon) adding a few pictures here … took many! You can see more pictures here: link

8' by 18' table. Mostly Perry Miniatures and Front Rank.

My group also ran a Bunker Hill and Kursk game as well … pictures of those also in the same post.













And MANY more picture on the blog …

I saw some of those games. I only got into one game (other than open gaming), and that was Traveller. We saved the galaxy (or our little corner of it), so all was well. Actually, we just transported the things needed to save the galaxy and the user of the things, but it was still fun.

I did get some painting done: a nice science fiction soldier and a team of ultramodern contractor types, all of which will I think will see action in the Traveller game I've submitted to Pacificon.

The Waterloo game was beautiful and FAB! Had fun and actually played it to a conclusion. It ran smoothly with no nastiness imagine that In a Napoleonic game… The 20 year old Port was very good and with Jay buying the players a round of drinks at the conclusion of the game it made a fun experience into a truly memorable one. The effort that it took to set up and run was truly appreciated and certainly made it one of the best convention experiences EVAH! Many thanks!

Looks to be a great looking game with the Prussian arriving in a timely manner to save the left flank as did historically!
Notice the waterloo game was Empire at War rules. Can you advise as to what or equivalent these are too?

as an after action debrief….Do you think the foot prints of the fortress/BUA gave the British more advantage (than historical) in the number of units receiving protection/French units required to make assault, since in the way?

@Cloudy – aka Alan :-) Thanks for playing the game and for the kind words! One thing that makes running these large games easy is GREAT players … and we had 20 of them! :-)

@marshalGreg – Empires At War --- free rules available from my blog: link

For the BUA … not really. It is hard to grasp the distances in the pictures – always struggle to get the right level of depth out of pictures. I think the BUAs are the only thing that give the anglo allies a chance … without them they'd be totally overrun. They do become sinkholes for troops though … total meat grinders … which they should be. Honestly, two times we've run it the games have been relatively close .. decided in the last couple of turns. Seems well balanced so far … early tactical decisions are critical to the late game results.
