Waterloo 200 year Commemorative Mega Battle @ Helsinki

Hey folks!

I've been quite busy the last few months preparing for our Waterloo megabattle, and here are the pics to prove it!

The 200 year commemorative Battle of Waterloo was fought in our club in Helsinki on the last weekend of July. Compared to our first real Waterloo game in 2013 this was far more massive as we managed to include the Prussians in almost their whole entirety to contest Plancenoit and drive the French Generals to suppress the flank.

With the Landwher moving onwards sluggishly, the Line regiments show how its done!

Since my last update I've managed to create half of Bulow's IV Corps. This includes all 4 regiments of Silesian Landwher (12 battalions) as well as the 1st and 2nd Silesian Line Regiments (6 battalions). Furthermore two cannon batteries and two regiments of Silesian Landwher cavalry were added to round off the forces for Plancenoit! Unfortunately I had to substitute the other half of the corps with stand in troops from my earlier Von Ziethens I Corps, but amends will be made for our next mega battle for sure ;)

1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Silesian Landwher Regiments

Thats it for now! We'll be refocusing on the 1812 Russian campaign till next spring after which we'll probably have a go at our first Leipzig 1813.

Stay tuned!
