6mm Waterloo wargame

Some pictures of a large 6mm Waterloo game held at a local school. We had around 40 children and 10 adults, we held a talk about the Napoleonic wars with uniforms and weapons, we had a live demo of the battle with the figures being moved into there approximate positions at set times in the talk.
We even had Cotton wool to show were the cannon were. Great fun, and question time at the end was fantastic with the children asking lots of questions.
Living history at its best.
