Quatre-Bra 1815

While most of our gamming takes place between 1630-1780, we do have Napoleonic troops. (all box art courtsey of plasticsoldierreview.com)

While doing some spring cleaning, Ian found my French cavalry and began setting them up.

The British Force consisted of

It was a good action, but I forgot to take some shots, the action was so good.  Thus all the images are box shots.
Our action was about 2 hours. The French were advancing through modern Belgium while the British were looking at delaying the French advance. Ian took on the French while I took on the British. As my objective was to slow down the French movements, the RHA blasted into the French horse. The infantry gave as good as they got, but as they were getting charged by nasty horses, they fled. The 79th Cameron Highlanders broke at one point but rallied, and then held off further charges. The RHA reduced the French artillery to only two guns. For some reason, Ian failed to realise that he could fire on my guns to take them out. Late in the action, he then used his French cavalry and guns to take them out. Eventually, the British Army felt that they had delayed the French enough and pulled back.
