Refight of the Battles of Waterloo & Wavre


On a 'Stella' (Artois) fuelled Monday night, someone said lets refight Waterloo and Wavre on the same day, just like it happened in reality! We all laughed ...

but the wiring in Big John's head went into overload. By the time of our next meeting he said 'I have a plan, lets refight "Waterloo and Wavre on the same day, just like it happened in reality!", we laughed ...

but it turned out that he was serious, so we thought why not!

We set the date for 17th June, rules chosen (Shako), terrain was planned, figures made ready and a venue secured at 'Worrell Towers'. We spent the evening of Friday 16th setting-up, over 3,000 figures were involved on two tables - Waterloo
on 18' x 8' and Wavre on 8' x 6'.

Enjoy the pictures... (words by Bjorn and Benny)


My, my, at Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
Oh yeah, and I have met my destiny in quite a similar way
The history book on the shelf


Is always repeating itself














Waterloo - I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo - Promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo















My, my, I tried to hold you back but you were stronger
Oh yeah, and now it seems my only chance is giving up the fight
And how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose










Waterloo - I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo - Promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo









So how could I ever refuse
I feel like I win when I lose - 


Waterloo - Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you

Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo
