The 200th anniversary of Borodino in Aotearoa

This is how a group of Kiwis chose to celebrate the anniversary...

We should be able to do the same for the 200th anniversay of Waterloo in 3 years time, right? :D

BTW I know at least one of the guys who played this game from back in the day with 15mm Naps. I see 28mm seems to have taken over. Interesting.

Hurrah! That is awesome and inspirational! I'm going to work on my French tonight. Cheers to your country mates, Mike, and maybe there's a chance for something like that to occur in Nagoya someday (although don't hold any breathes).
