With the 200th anniversary nearly upon us (18th June 1815), it occurred to me that this would be the one and only opportunity for us to commemorate this epic event in European military history, so this issue contains several articles marking this momentous occasion.
Military historian John Franklin describes the desperate fighting around the two key positions on the battlefield of Waterloo in Hougoumont and La Haie Sainte.
Well-known wargamer Steve Jones has done us proud with Napoleon’s final gamble, the ultimate campaign for the Napoleonics fan: the 100 Days as the Emperor, having escaped from Elba, attempts yet again to overturn the old order and rebuild his empire by might of arms.
Cardboard terrain enthusiast Jeff Brown has created PDF models of La Haie Sainte and Hougoumont for use with any size of miniature – they’re in the magazine, but you will also be able to download the PDFs from our site and resize them to whatever scale is required! (Available from Friday 22nd May.)
In Siborne’s greatest victory, none other than Siona Mackelworth and Cymbeline Storey of the Royal Armouries in Leeds have sent us a magnificent piece describing and showing the recent restoration work on Captain Siborne’s amazing model of Waterloo made in the early 19th century. They are also running a wargaming event on 13th and 14th June.
Of course, we have lots of other stuff too!
