This PDF Download consists of a short introduction & ten historical scenarios calculated to recreate the famous actions at The Battle Of The Waterloo June 18th 1815, authored by Mr Kinrade of Derby.
This is a narrative campaign, construct of ten scenarios from the wider Waterloo battlefield, picking out locations and/or times around the battlefield of significance or importance. It would not be practical (but not impossible with a larger enough table), to replay the entire of Waterloo as one game. Instead, it has been broken down into more ‘playable’ tabletop scenarios. The scenarios are set-out chronologically, from the first attack in the morning into the final attacks in the evening and they should be played in this way. Scenarios can also, of course, be played as one-off historical refight games, just for an evening’s entertainment. A couple of the scenarios can also be combined into a single larger game, if players have the time, table size and model collections to do so. Each scenario’s result will contribute to the overall victory in the day’s fighting at Waterloo. No single scenario will win the day outright, but the side that does better across all the scenarios will have won the day (and the campaign). The victor of the campaign will be the side that earns the most Battle Victory Points from the scenarios and thus contributes the most their army’s ultimate fortunes on the day (of course, this might be different to the actual outcome, but where would the fun be if the player’s already knew the final outcome). As commanders, you are refighting ‘your’ Waterloo, not ‘the’ Waterloo.
The campaign consists of 10 battles, 7 involve Anglo-Allied forces, 3 involve Prussian forces. For those with both forces, the campaign can be played in full, with all 10 games, or it can broken into two smaller sub-campaigns. The first is of 7 battles just using the Anglo-Allied scenarios (the ‘Battle for Mont St Jean’ option) or the second of 3 battles just using the Prussian forces (the ‘Battle for Plancenoit’ option). Of course, all the battles here are fought against the French.
