Happy Quatre Bras and Ligny day, 16 June 1815:



Back in 2012 a group of us from the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) Club of Texas refought the battle on this day in Austin TX at the Late Great – "Great Hall Games"





It was a fun game using 15mm figures and Napoleon at War rules. The French won a victory that day:




The Battle of Quatre Bras was fought on 16 June 1815, as a preliminary engagement to the decisive Battle of Waterloo that occurred two days later. The battle took place near the strategic crossroads of Quatre Bras[a] and was contested between elements of the Duke of Wellington's Anglo-allied army and the left wing of Napoleon Bonaparte's French Armée du Nord under Marshal Michel Ney. While the battle was tactically indecisive.





The Battle of Ligny was fought on 16 June 1815, in which French troops of the Armée du Nord under the command of Napoleon I defeated part of a Prussian army under Field Marshal Blücher, near Ligny in present-day Belgium. The battle resulted in a tactical victory for the French, but the bulk of the Prussian army survived the battle in good order and played a pivotal role two days later at the Battle of Waterloo, having been reinforced by Prussian troops who had not participated at Ligny. The battle of Ligny was the last victory in Napoleon's military career.

Thank you for posting pics of the battle of Ligny.

Perhaps you might include some photos of happy players next time.

Have fun ;-)

Cavcmdr – the game was very intense as you can see by the faces – we had a great time. Too bad Napoleon at War (NaW) died – it made for a very fun rules set, it had a good following here in central Texas, but few still play the rules now.

Nice photos, 2 things I have in my collection, GEOHEX and Napoleon at War. The game still trickles along, V2 was just such a disappointment
