Massive Wargame of the Battle of Waterloo

Colborne 52nd Regiment solders
Wargaming

This is a one-off event in June 2019, which will set a world record for the largest ever historical wargame in 28mm (an application has been made to Guinness World Records to make this official). The battle to be replayed in the game will be Waterloo. You can participate, you can watch and you can sponsor.

The wargame is being staged in support of Waterloo Uncovered, a charity that combines a world-class archaeology project on the battlefield of Waterloo with a support programme for veterans and the military community. Working in partnership with some of Europe’s top universities, and through the unique perspective of a team comprised of archaeologists, veterans, and serving soldiers, Waterloo Uncovered aims to understand war and its impact on people — and to educate the public about it.

The event will be a replay of the Battle of Waterloo. It will be held at the University of Glasgow over the weekend of 15 and 16 June 2019, in the Kelvin Gallery. Set-up will be on Friday 14 June, and the game will commence on the morning of Saturday 15 June and continue through Sunday 16 June. The outcome is unknown. This is a game after all! There will be a social event on the evening of Saturday 15 June.
