1992 25mm Napoleonic Waterloo
In the days when wargamers could smoke heavily indoors I played Waterloo game on a 12ft x 6ft table laid out to roughly represent the famous terrain. Hougoumont was represented by club members home made church and La Haye Sainte by the Airfix fix of the famous farm. The French figures were majority Minifigs and the British I think were/are Connoisseur. I say are as they form the core of my Napoleonic armies now. We used home made rules and scaled the forces involved to fit the figures we had. In hindsight the battle probably represented Waterloo in name only but I remember we has a blast. I can't remember who won which probably means I was on the losing side, which I think was French.
