Waterloo: Border Reivers Wargames Society

no comments
Chris Johnson of The Border Reivers Wargames Society dropped us a line re a little game of Black Powder their club ran, and with the upcoming release of the new starter set ‘Waterloo’ what better time to get inspired to play Napoleonics than now!

Chris: Our club recently hosted a large Black Powder Waterloo game (which just ‘happened’ to be the anniversary of the battle – heh heh). Here’s a selection of the many many photos that were able to take through out the day, recording the set up through some key battles to winning the final objective!

Nothing better than adding a little atmosphere – can put your opponent off too!
