Commands & Colors Napoleonic: Epic Waterloo

This game was played at Western Suburbs Wargame Association on 22nd September 2018.

If you’re going to play Napoleonic wargames with 6mm figures, sooner or later you’re going to end up playing the big one – Waterloo!

Rohan provided his beautifully painted figures and we used the Epic Waterloo scenario for Commands & Colours Napoleonic with four players.  Bernard was the overall Allied commander and I took the Allied right flank around Hougoumont .  Tony and Rohan shared the command of the French opposing us.

Commands & Colors Napoleonic: Epic Eggmühl

I played my first introductory game of Commands & Colors Napoleonics a few months ago and although I’ve never collected armies for the period, I was excited to have the chance to play a larger game at my local club (Western Suburbs Wargames Association) recently.

Commands & Colors is a hex-based wargame with an elegant card driven command and control mechanism and simple dice system for combat resolution.  It’s published by GMT Games and you can find out more information on the game’s website, where the PDF for the 3rd edition rules are also available as a free download.  Although originally intended for playing on board with plastic blocks to represent units , it also works perfectly on a cloth marked out with hexagons and miniatures for the armies.
