For our second outdoor game of the season I opted for a lightly modified version of the Paris game played in London back in far-off 2019. See here for the first part of the report on this earlier game. The game was set in May 1871 as French government forces close on the Commune-controlled city. The Commune forces were led by General Cluseret and Colonel Rossel. Govedrment troops were commanded by Marshal MacMahon, with Generals Gallifet and Cissey.

A few weeks ago I ran Waterloo as a remote game for six players over two evenings. This was prompted by the discovery on Wargames Vault of Evening Napoleon by Alex Trumier. I think the download set me back about £5.
I had played through a few turns of a game some months previously and so was completely confident* that all would go smoothly. Above is the table setup with the French deployed - the playing area is 2x2 feet! Toys were all from my collection of 15mm.
