End of Empire

A few shots from a game I sadly missed over Xmas
Waterloo under the Fire and Fury variant rule-set

Reminiscent of Pickett's fateful charge the high point of the French attack over the ridge only to face a mass of fresh infantry, cavalry and artillery. The cluster of horse on the ridge is not scattered cavalry but French generals who have "lost" their commands from out underneath them.

Exhausted, over-stretched and with Prussians appearing in force on the flank, the end is nigh

A sad dejected Napoleon who thinks what-if and other imponderables, with no further use for the mass of artillery behind him. The game itself looked a grand thing!
