I was just curious if anyone had, or knew where I could get, the order of battle for the Waterloo wargame that has been called the largest wargame ever played. Thank you!

As far as I know the OOB was based on historical records.

Each battalion present at the battle was represented by 3 24 man infantry units and each brigade commanded by a wargamer had three or four such battalions. Some brigades had attached artillery units.

Cavalry regiments were represented by three 12 man units.

The initial ask was for over 20,000 figures. There were actually 22,435 figures authenticated as on the table in play. There were another 7,000 figures in reserve under the table.
