Sunday, 18 June 1815; on an unassuming rain-soaked field in Belgium; two great generals of the age finally met in battle. The climactic clash of the Hundred Days campaign wrought the end of around twenty years of continuous warfare on the continent, and with it an end to the reign of Napoleon. The Battle of Waterloo, arguably the most famous battle in all military history, provides more than a fitting subject for our second foray into the 'Epic' scale of wargaming. Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo is here.
This bundle contains a French starter set and a scenery pack depicting the strategically vital farmhouse at Hougoumont. The importance of the walled chateau at Hougoumont was underlined by the elite troops the Duke of Wellington placed in its defence. These troops were garrisoned just before their French enemy also sought to occupy the buildings, such was its significance and the bloody struggle for its control raged for hours. You’ll also receive a paint set to get your troops battle ready.
By pre-ordering this bundle, you’ll also receive the special edition promotional miniature Sous-lieutenant Legros - nicknamed 'L'Enfonceur' as he takes an axe to the gates at Hougoumont. He is accompanied by an infantryman and a drummer boy (the only Frenchman left alive by the British at Hougoumont). This miniature will not be available after the game’s release.
