Last Saturday I was planning on going along to the club to take part in a refight of the Battle of Wagram in 1809. The game was organised by Mike and utilised his enormous collection of 1/72 scale plastic figures in an enormous game using the Absolute Emperor set of rules. Sadly, my body had other ideas and the thought of going up and down a narrow spiral staircase every time I needed a wee turned my pain receptors right down to the point I could barely move. Of course by lunchtime at home I was feeling miserable and was wishing I’d gone but that’s life and it would have been silly and an imposition on the others. Anyway, Mike, Richard and Neil kindly sent me some photos the of the action, and it does look rather splendid! The photos aren’t necessarily in the correct order but I don’t think that matters too much. I’m also not entirely sure what is going on but hopefully that doesn’t matter.click on the photos to embiggen them.
