Waterloo with 15mm

An excellent contest. D'Erlons Corps managed to inflict the crushing blow that evaded them in 1815. All figures courtesy of Phil at Heston Wargaming group in West London. All 15mm. No pictures of the hordes of Prussians sadly as they were too late to influence the outcome.

French troops begin to envelope La Haye Saint.

French, Poles, Saxons and Bavarians vs The Prussians. 1813.

An excellent game which saw a resounding French victory, securing 2 out of the 3 objectives and still contesting the 3rd at the end.
Most of the infantry figures are Newline 20mm with a sprinkling of plastic HaT (Prussian light infantry for example though the skirmishers are Art Miniaturen)
Cavalry are all Art Miniaturen 20mm. The revised East Prussian Cuirassiers with light blue facings were an eager addition for the Prussians as they lacked any meaningful medium/heavy cavalry to face the heavies of the French.
6 brigades of infantry on each side. Approx 120 figures per brigade.
