QB the last...for the moment

Its the Menu de Renforts!

Oh yes, one last bit of activity this holiday weekend. I have had the privilege of re-reading Peter Hofschroer's Waterloo Campaign to research the reinforcement schedule. This is a great resource even if the conclusions are a bit iffy for an Englishman! I have added the draft reinforcement schedule to the QB page. All we need to do now is find some time to get playing and see if it actually works.

There may be a number of issues with this game, mainly around activation levels and attrition. It will be interesting to see how it plays. The idea is that this should produce a very tense game all the way through to the finish.

I have also enjoyed reading the Walking Waterloo Blog over the weekend. Another great resource. Thankfully, I have not felt the need to go and change anything on the play test map as a result. Some great map extracts and photos though, as per this example.
