CC:N Waterloo played.

Well I played the game last night till bedtime and finished it tonight. Here are some photos of the finished game. As always the game was packed with incident and drama and very entertaining.

 The French had very little remaining of their centre, even the Old Guard were destroyed attempting to take La Haye Sainte.
 Both Hougomont and Pappelotte were taken by the French but they were quickly evicted from both strongpoints.
 Their last gamble was a cavalry attack which was subsequently defeated by an Allied cavalry charge.
 Eight banners for the Allies.
 Only six for the French.
A smashing game, I enjoyed playing it on the larger board. I own the Austrian and Russian expansions and the Prussian expansion may be brought by Santa Claus.

Happy days!.

Commands and Colors Napoleonics

After many games of Conan, all very enjoyable, I fancied a change. So I set up the Waterloo scenario on my big MDF board with some 3D terrain...



 La Haye Sainte
 Hougomont
I'll play this later, maybe a strong French attack on the relatively weak Allied left wing. But who knows what will happen with a game of Commands and Colors!.
