Epic Battles: WATERLOO - Apple Trees
Pre order Only - Releasing January 2022
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.
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.
