WATERLOO 200th YEAR ANNIVERSARY.

Waterloo.

What are you doing to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo, 18 June 1815. A friend who is a keen miniature tabletop wargamer plans to put on a large Waterloo battle on a 18 ft by 5ft table. My plan is much less ambitious, requires a lot less setting up and will only involve taking a day of work and hooking up with one \ two of the regular crew and playing games related to the event. 

On the play list are:

Napoleon the Waterloo Campaign.
Commands and Colors Napoleonics- Waterloo scenario
Manoeuvre- Fan created Waterloo scenario.
Napoleons War- The 100 Days.

I stumbled on a fantastic animated map of the battle, click here. It gives a wonderful feel for the famous clash. Kudos to the creator, great job.
