Waterloo-Plancenoit

The Battle of Waterloo-Plancenoit 1815 ...

Napoleonic WRG (October 2015)


Rob wanted to use his nearly completed II Corps (circa 1812) using WRG rules.
So we used a battlefield map from a old campaign and Don brought his Anglo-Portuguese as well as some of Rob's Anglo-Portuguese and Spanish.
There were 4 players per side with lots of figures.


Looking from French right to left. I commanded here with one brigade of infantry, one brigade of Saxon Kuirassiers and two batteries.

From the Anglo-Portuguese-Spanish left to right. Steve McG commanded a Spanish infantry division and a cavalry division support by about five batteries

Closer look of my French infantry command (6 x 24 battalions) and the Saxon cavalry on the road.

Same again just a little further off.

Some of the Spanish heavy cavalry (Front Rank figures I painted for Rob some years ago.

More Spanish cavalry with British artillery and LLL battery

Don't think there was a decision in the end but it was a fun day.

Napoleonic AWRG (Sept 2015)


These AWRG games are played by two members refreshing their memories on the rules.  These two players use to come to the club when we were based at Lindfield.

Small but enjoyable games.

The British and French are having it out. Is that the 42nd?

Is that the British Foot Guards and others closing in on some plucky Voltigeurs?

Looks like a unit of Hanoverian's advancing

A clash of French heavies against British Hussars coming


Into it boys

A general advance in that direction

Need to take more photos of these games.
