Ypres was the setting for the Wigmore Warriors as they recreated World War 1 – From Start to Finish on two tables showing the same location, one lush green countryside in 1914, the other a bombed out wasteland in 1918.
My knowledge and interest in the Napoleonic era usually extends only as far as watching episodes of Sharpe. I do however like the sheer spectacle of massed colourful infantry, charging cavalry and smoking cannons that a good Napoleonic display can provide.
And they don’t come much more spectacular than Waterloo 1815 by the Essex Gamesters Robert Browning and Ron Ringrose (of Corunna 1809 fame) at Salute 2013.
Wargames Illustrated presented the wonderfully naturalistic Battle of Little Big Top American Civil War display.
This early WW1 game based on the Miracle of the Marne 1914 was played using the Crush the Kaiser set of rules.
Unfortunately I don’t have details for the tables below, other that they are set during conflicts between the United States and Mexico. Hope you enjoy the pictures nonetheless.
