Waterloo at the Armouries

Popped over to the Royal Amouries yesterday for the Waterloo week.

On the 4th. Floor they a small exhibit room which had some interesting stuff.

First up was the original painting of the charge of the Scots Greys. It looks good in close up.

Max takes his orders from the emperor. 
Made a nice change as he never listens to me.

Now this would have hurt.

In all I counted 11 games being put.  There were at least 3 participation and Max spent 4 hours joining in whist I chatted away to various people.

Here are few photos of the games. Black Powder and Blucher seemed to used more than other rules with a large 6mm Age of Eagles also spotted.

Max had fun however I feel that a bit more could have been done on the day with perhaps more games and re enactors present. There was room.

On the plus side the museum was busy and as this was free the public could wander around and have a look at Wargames in action.
