    Me too Bill.
    I hope they follow up with some pictures of the event in action.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I suspect there will be. Might even be a live twitch feed or something. One of the sponsors is Warlord Games. They are using their "Black Powder" rules and I suspect a mixture of Warlord and Perry 28 mm miniatures. Would have been a nice vacation across the pond to see this, alas I spent all my Waterloo bullets by going over in 2015. (i.e.; I am indebted to my wife for allowing me to go!).

    Thanks for the Heads up Bill.
    Not massive coverage, but enough to whet the appetite for more.
    Pity we did not see more of the enactors in uniform though.

    Here is coverage of the game this weekend on Yahoo -- a nice album of photos showing the figures, the game in progress, and the gamers themselves.

    Interesting I wondered how they were going to lay out the table so everyone could get involved. Nice looking model of Hougumont there.
