This is truly an impressive looking game! Some great terrain you've built up to fight over. This is a perfect example to prove people wrong when someone says that 6mm gaming looks dull visually. That terrain and the huge amounts of minis really makes the battlefield look alive!

Many thanks for your kind comments DintheDin and Nysse. You are right about 6mm Nysse. Over the years I have gamed all the larger scales but 6mm has become my preferred scale, especially when fighting larger battles.

Such a large battle -and comprising all the features of the real battle in full length- could be played only with 6mm! But you also made perfectly all the historical research and the preparatory work to put in your game all the units, buldings and set up some beautifully made terrain! As a result, the whole thing is a feast for the eyes! Plus your talented narration, what more a reader wants?

They are excellent . 6mm works brilliantly with your style and basing. You have a epic feel.

Once again thanks for all your kind comments.

Part 7 of The Battle of Waterloo in 6mm is now on my blog. This covers the period 5.00pm - 6.00pm. Wellington's allies teetering on the brink and only heroic actions by individual units hold the line, the Middle Guard make their presence felt and Prussians pile on the pressure.

I have never seen anything like this....and to think it is being played solo! Simply amazing and wonderful to look at.
