200 years in June. One of the most famous battles in history. We gotta commemorate that somehow, haven't we?

Between us we must have enough. QB, Wavre and Ligny should be easy enough too.

I have the "Too Fat Lardies" map, which I had thought to use for a Kriegsspiel campaign. They may be too detailed though.

www.waterloo200.org/ is offering a free campaign medal, though you have to pay postage and there are several 'special offers' to wade through.

There is also a massive re-enactment taking place in June, which I may well attend: www.waterloo2015.org/en


Cheers,

Richard

Three years ago I was on the Docklands Light Railway on my way to Salute, and I was listening to the conversation of a group of re-enactors who were planning to be at the 2015 event. Even then they were saying that all the hotels in Brussels were fully booked.

I plan to invest heavily in some 10mm armies for this soon (rather than SYW) but I am not sure which rules to use.

Any suggestions, please? Black Powder may work because the rules are simple but I would prefer to fight large battles, if possible.


Cheers,

Richard

I have the Napoleon at War rules:

www.manatwar.es


I think they are much more flavourful than Black Powder but are also designed for 15 (or their figures are actually 18mm figures). I do have British and French in their figures if you want to give it a go some time. It is a Spanish set with some translation issues at times, but a pretty good forum for getting clarifications from the original authors.

I would certainly be interested in taking part in this should we do something and to help set it up. If we are going to though I do have a few questions

1. What date would it be, the closest Sunday would be the 21st.
2. If we do a re-enactment what scale figures wise. I have loads of 15mm both British and French and a very small number of 28mm British.
3. What rules set, there are loads for Napoleonic.
4. Would we be able to either book the hall for the Saturday as well and/or extend the number of hours on the Sunday, as I would doubt a normal Sunday afternoon would be long enough.

The priority would be to book a venue, I think. There isn't much time left before the anniversary.

Perhaps a Doodle poll, to get an idea of numbers?
