I recently came across these board games on line and their rules seem very much like miniatures rules.
They are expensive, but they have a great aesthetic appeal. I’m tempted to check them out.05/06/2018 at 14:58 #92585Darkest Star GamesParticipant
They are indeed lovely looking games, very “old timey”.

How replayable do you find it to be?05/06/2018 at 19:45 #92618Mr. AverageParticipant
As replayable as any historical battle game. It’s not something I own a lot of – I prefer fiction and spectulative so it’s hard for me to say. It certainly resists the “perfect strategy” that some historical games I have played seem susceptible to. It also lacks any special rules to force a historical outcome (none of the “General McClellan Was An Idiot” rules) so it’s down to tactics and terrain.06/06/2018 at 01:28 #92637
Thanks for the input!25/06/2018 at 19:27 #93959
As fate would have it they just put their Waterloo game on kickstarter, so I’ve taken the plunge.
I don’t know a thing about the battle, though.26/06/2018 at 13:53 #93983Thaddeus BlanchetteParticipant
Historically, the British won.

The Corsican dwarf came second.
There is the view that Blucher won, Nosey came second and Boney third. But the holder of that view is serving time in jail.26/06/2018 at 17:19 #94018
I enjoy a good fantasy setting, so Brits vs. Dwarves and people with outlandish names like Nosey, Boney, and Blucher sound like fun.28/06/2018 at 00:23 #94105Thaddeus BlanchetteParticipant
And you get the Imperial Guard, too, which is always a plus.
