It was on this day 7 years ago today that the absolute best wargame to occur in Texas at the GREAT HALL GAMES in Austin. A dozen + of us met up to refight Quatre Bras in 15mm using Napoleon at War rules.

Players included Rob Gravener, Biff Coon, Mike Gomez, Francisco Luis Erize, Rob Smith, and many others. It ended with a French victory after a long fight up to the crossroads and through the woods. The British V Corps finally arrived to great fanfare then proceeded to get slaughtered – with Picton taking a round and falling off his horse two days before he should have. A fun game.

We failed to go back the next year and fight Ligny and Waterloo – maybe in the future?? Good memories.

Thanks for posting a shot from the "good old days" when our FLGS was still functioning. It was good to see familiar faces, especially two who passed on, Biff and Gordon. I didn't participate but nothing says "miniature war gaming" like a Napoleonic table groaner!

That looks good. More smiles, please ;-)

I used to have a couple of boxes of Geo-Hex. The hills were very useful. Unfortunately, things got hard and I had to sell.

Does anybody remember the angle of the slopes?

Too many products have very steep gradients and / or slippery surfaces making them hard to use. They may look great but we still need practicality.

So, what was the angle of dangle?

Have fun.
