Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – British Starter Set – 108,00€

Sunday, 18 June 1815; on an unassuming rain-soaked field in Belgium; two great generals of the age finally met in battle. The climactic clash of the Hundred Days campaign wrought the end of around twenty years of continuous warfare on the continent, and with it an end to the reign of Napoleon. The Battle of Waterloo, arguably the most famous battle in all military history, provides more than a fitting subject for our second foray into the ‚Epic‘ scale of wargaming. Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo is here.

This British Army starter set provides a solid core of a British army serving in the Hundred Days campaign – 10 units of line infantry, 3 units of 95th Rifles, units of each type of heavy cavalry (Heavy Dragoons, Scots Greys and Household Cavalry) and light cavalry (Hussars and Light Dragoons), ably supported by 16 pieces of artillery and brigade commanders. Also included is an MDF building of La Belle Alliance Inn and a bespoke A5 softback rulebook with Napoleonic specific content.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – British Heavy Cavalry Brigade – 30,00€

Arguably the best shock cavalry of the period, the British heavy cavalry showed great bravery but poor control on the day of Waterloo. These heavy cavalry smashed the French columns to pieces but, due to their poor leadership, they were destroyed by the French in turn. There were two heavy cavalry brigades, the Household division with four regiments and the Union Brigade with three. To give close support the Royal Horse Artillery attached to them field fast-moving, deadly 6-pounder guns. Sound the charge!

This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three British heavy cavalry regiments (two bases of Royal Scots Greys, three bases of Household Cavalry and six bases of Heavy Dragoons) and a 3-gun battery of Royal Horse Artillery 6-pdrs.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – British Infantry Brigade – 30,00€

These are ‚Noseys‘ men – solid battalions of redcoats who would stand firm at Quatre Bras and Waterloo. Disciplined, tough and all volunteers, they had high confidence in themselves and their officers, and held the crucial ridge all day long against a brave and determined enemy. These plastic figures can be painted as British line and Guards regiments or Kings German Legion. With a minor modification these will work as the brave blue-tuniced Belgians. A Colonel on horseback is included for each unit and a 9-pounder Royal Artillery battery to engage the enemy at long range with a hail of shot and shrapnel. To keep the enemy skirmishers at bay, they are accompanied by the famous riflemen, all sharpshooters to a man.

This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three British line infantry regiments of 80 men each, a regiment of 95th Rifles with 60 men, a 3-gun Royal Artillery 9-pdr battery and three mounted brigade commanders.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – British Light Cavalry Brigade – 30,00€

British light cavalry had a reputation of ‚galloping at anything‘ and whilst not entirely fair, they certainly were not shy in taking on enemy light cavalry and indeed even the huge armoured heavy French cavalry, as the men were confident in themselves and their horses being as large as the heavy French steeds. The light cavalry were gloriously attired. This boxed set enables you to build brigades of light cavalry with the two types of hussars and the more sombre light dragoons who thought themselves the equal of the foppish hussars. They are accompanied by the ever-reliable Royal Horse Artillery 9-pounder guns. Tally ho!

This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three British light cavalry regiments (3 bases of Hussars in shako, 3 bases of Hussars in busby and 5 bases of Light Dragoons) and a 3-gun battery of Royal Horse Artillery 9-pdrs.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – French Heavy Cavalry Brigade 30,00€

Cuirassiers, Carabiniers and Dragoons were France’s heavy strike force and had proven themselves throughout Europe on every battlefield and against a host of enemies. Well-armed and armoured, and intelligently led, these are big men on big horses – two thirds of them in shining steel and copper armour bright in the Belgian sunlight.

Some regiments may have taken their beloved eagle standards on the field of battle as rallying points – we have included this option for those wishing to field them in all their glory. This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three French heavy cavalry regiments (four bases of Cuirassiers, three bases of Carabiniers and three bases of Dragoons) and a 3-gun horse artillery 6-pdr battery.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – French Infantry Brigade – 30,00€

‚Vive L’empereur!‘ A cry shouted from thousands of proud Frenchmen as ‚Les bleus‘ stormed forward in tight, disciplined columns on the 18th June 1815 at the small Belgian town of Waterloo. Many of these veterans had served for years with Napoleon and his hard-hitting armies. They fully intended to see off Wellington’s Allied army and march to Brussels in glory. The infantry columns were screened by hundreds of voltigeurs, light infantry in loose order whilst overhead fire by massed foot batteries of 6-pounders hammered the allied lines. Who can stand in their way?

This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three French line or light infantry regiments of 80 men each, 24 voltigeurs skirmishing, a 3-gun Foot Artillery 6-pdr battery and a mounted brigade commander.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – French Light Cavalry Brigade – 30,00€

There are few more impressive sights to see than massed French light cavalry in full array. Green-clad Chasseurs and the colourfully dressed Hussars did most of the outpost and scouting duties before battle commenced. Perhaps the most impressive of the light cavalry units are the splendidly dressed and equipped lancers of the line wielding wicked 9 foot long ash lances that used to deadly effect. Accompanying them is a battery of 6-pounder horse artillery served by skilled veteran gunners who can advance with their cavalry brigade.

This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three French light cavalry regiments (21 Lancers, 18 Hussars and 21 Chasseurs a Cheval) and a 3-gun horse artillery 6-pdr battery.

Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo – Apple Trees – 7,20€

Prior to the desolation wrought by the fierce combat, the area of Waterloo was lush with apple trees, with orchards both present at the key positions of Hougoumont and adjacent to La Haye Sainte farmhouse. Alas, being situated on the site of the most famous of historical battles, many a tree bore the broken branches and brunt of cannon and gunpowder – the orchard at Hougoumont, the site of several assaults, has yet to be replanted to this day.

Populate your Black Powder Epic Battles battlefields with this pack of four highly detailed (and pre-battle-ravaged) apple trees.

  • Ich hoffe ja, dass die Epic Reihe so erfolgreich wird, dass auch ein antikes Setting kommt. Damit hätten sie mich sofort. Aber auch hier juckt es mich einzusteigen.

    • Das war mein erster Gedanke als damals die ACW Box rausgekommen ist. Für einen römischen Bürgerkrieg oder Hopliten gegen Hopliten könnten auch beide Seiten die selben Miniaturen verwenden.

      • Gut, hier zeigen sie ja auch, dass sie Boxen mit unterschiedlichen Einheiten produzieren können. Auf die Art könnten sie für mich einmal durch die gesamte Antike durch gehen. Ich würde einfach alles nehmen.

  • Wie auch schon bei ACW-Epic:
    Ein kurzer Schockmoment – mehr als 200 Minis in 28mm bemalt, trotzdem nicht wirklich spielbereit; jetzt dieser billige 12mm (?) Epic-Kram, der große spielbare und akzeptabel aussehende Black Powder Armeen realistisch macht…waren die vielen hundert Euro für Perry, Calpe, Frontrank in 28mm rausgeschmissenes Geld, die Malzeit vergeudet?
    Nö; wenn mir Uniformen-Details nicht egal sind, dann sind diese Minis m.E. zu „gesichtslos“ und uniform; will ich auf Korps-Ebene spielen, dann wäre es eine echte Alternative zu den 6mm-„Klumpen“. Gut aussehen tut es aber in meinen Augen nicht.

    • Es sind ja nicht nur die Details, auch die Zusammenstellung der Gußrahmen ist seltsam, da hat von manchen Einheiten recht schnell viel zu viel und von anderen imme noch zu wenig. Da ist die preisliche Ersparnis gegenüber 28mm einzig bei den Kanonen die man hier quasi „gratis“ bekommt.

      Und da nicht zu erwarten ist das außer Preußen noch andere Nationen kommen (weil eben Waterloo) ist es damit außerhalb dieses Szenarios eh keine echte Alternative zu 28mm, 1/72 oder 6mm

  • Die Figuren gefallen mir wirklich gut, wenn da dann noch ein paar Alternative Truppen kommen, wäre das Klasse! So ist es mir noch ein bisschen zu sehr Clone Wars.

    Ich habe überhaupt keine Vorstellungen zur Bemaldauer in keinen Maßstäben, hat jemand einen Anhaltspunkt zu 28mm?

    • Ich habe nur sehr eingeschränkte erfahrung, weil ich gerade eine wortwörtliche Handvoll 6/8 mm Minis als Basedeko für Titanicus gemalt habe.
      Die Antwort ist aber: Schnell!
      Zumindest solange man nicht versucht Pupillen reinzumalen. 😉

      Aber Spaß beiseite, letztenendes pinselt man ja Fläche an. Und so eine 6mm hat wirklich wenig Fläche. In dem Maßstab will man es eh sehr kontrastreich haben, sodass ich denke dass man mit Grundfarbe+Wash+Brush+Helmhighlight wirklich zu Ergebnissen kommen kann die gut aussehen, wenn da 200 Typen stehen.

    • Die Sachen erscheinen aber erst Ende Januar 2022.

      Aktuell kann man das nur vorbestellen, Boxen unter dem Weihnachtsbaum wird es davon aber noch nicht geben.

  • Das Thema finde ich auch ziemlich interessant. Bei der Antike wäre ich auch sofort dabei😃. Was das Bemalen betrifft…. Oha ich glaube da wird man sich ein Wolf malen🖌️😅

  • Haben die doch tatsächlich die Zahl der Speichen bei den Lafetten der Artillerie auf ein realistisches Maß erhöht. Das hat mich bei den ACW Sets so genervt, die 8 Speichen waren mir selbst in diesem Maßstab zu primitiv und simpel! Geht doch also, warum nicht gleich so.

    Die Napoleonische Epoche interessiert mich jetzt nicht so sehr, aber wenn die eine Range für den 30-jährigen Krieg raus bringen, würde ich wohl schwach werden.

  • Ich freue mich auf diese Boxen und werde mir das ein oder andere holen.

    Auf die normale Spielentfernung vom Tisch aus gesehen sind Details eh nur noch Nebensache und eher unter dem Aspekt „ich persönlich weiß, dass XY fehlt/falsch ist“.

  • Toll… Also wäre Kunststoff-Kavallerie doch beim ACW auch möglich gewesen. Aber da hatten sie es noch in überteuerten Gummi produziert.
    Tja, Waterloo holt mich gar nicht ab. MMn der langweilige Teil der Napo-Kriege. Auf beiden Seiten fehlen viel zu viele Nationen und das Ergebnis stand im Grunde vorher schon fest.

  • Da wird mein Geld hingehen für die großen Boxen… da kann ich endlich meine 3d Druck Dateien drucken und sinnvoll nutzen – 12mm sagt ihr ist der Maßstab?.

    • Du musst aufpassen. 12mm geistert irgendwie durchs Netz, aber genauso wie 28mm nicht wirklich 28mm sind, sind die 12mm hier wohl eher 13,5-14mm.
      Es gab zu dem Vorgänger viele Vergleiche im Netz und der funktionierte wohl auch mit „kleinen“ (d.h. Nicht heroischen) 15mm.
      Es gibt aktuell einen Typ in USA der liefert die noch fehlenden ACW Einheiten und spricht von 14mm.
      https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=133999.0

      Ansonsten viel Spaß beim drcuken. Müßte eigentlich hervorragend klappen.

  • Also
    1. Dieser Alleinstellungsmerkmal 12.5 mm ist doof. Nicht mischbar.
    2. Die komische Zusammenstellung der Box.
    3. Zentrierung auf Briten und Franzosen. Wo sind die Preußen? Belgier? Holländer?
    4. Die Erweiterungen finde ich teuer
    5. Lieblos Modelle.
    6. Viele haben es schon in 28mm oder 15mm.

    7. Alles aus einer Hand. Leicht zu besorgen.

    Aber mich holt es aus den Gründen 1 bis 6 nicht ab.
