I spent Saturday in Reading at Warfare 2015, my favourite wargames show. I bought a lot of terrain, some 25mm Numidians and Gauls, more 10mm ACW troops and the Bolt Action rule book. Bit of a feeding frenzy. This evening my friend Keith, who came up for the show and us staying over, set up a game of Blucher. We used a newly purchased Cigar Box Battle mat, some roads, a couple of building bases and the Hundred Days cards to replay D'Erlon's attack at Waterloo. It was a tense and enjoyable game in which the French broke Allied morale but with lots of their units close to fatigue. I already love the Blucher rules set, but am even happier that the cards allowed us to set up a game off the cuff that we completed within an evening. Even though I lost....

I have played wargames for five decades and still love the hobby. Recently retired, I have even more time to devote to it. More about me here.
