MegaGame 2024: The Battle of Wagram


The Battle of Wagram was fought over the 5th and 6th of July, 1809. It was a costly, but decisive, victory for Napoleon's French and allied army over the Austrians led by Archduke Charles. When it was fought, Wagram was the largest battle in European history, with more around 300,000 men, 40,000 cavalry, and 800 guns engaged over the two days.

This historical refight of the battle of Wagram will be done in 6mm scale with 1 figure representing approximately 20 men. There will be more than 13,500 infantry figures, 2,500 cavalry troopers, and over 170 artillery pieces on the table. Combined with our sculpted scenery, and more than a dozen commanders from across Australia this refight of Wagram promises to be a spectacular sight at BrisCon!

This 28mm miniatures game is set during the War of 1812 between Britain and the United State of America. The games are based on historical raids by the British Navy in Chesapeake Bay in 1814.

This is an easy to learn and fun to play rules set, and there are interesting troops involved, British Marines and Sailors and a Rocket Battery against American Militia Infantry, Cavalry, riflemen and artillery. Civilians play an important part in two of the scenarios, which are designed to link as a kind of campaign.
