Waterloo - League of Augsburg Weekender Part 3

Last few shots of the Waterloo relight in Derby in October.

The French pressed the Allied centre and right flank hard.
A view of the Allied side of the table - Mr Hilton in the distance. Unfortunately the photograph fails to demonstrate the depth of so many figures in such a small space.

Parts of the Allied centre begin to crack.
At Hougoumont a congenial stand off ensues.
The Prussian were played off table and Napoleon (played by Paul Patrick) even led some cavalry charges which broke the Prussian ranks.
In the end the umpires adjudicated and declared a French victory. Les Bleus were still on the Allies ridge as dusk fell with a fair amount in reserve.
To the victor the spoils...
