Napoleonic Bicentenary Wargames Survey Results Published!
Back in 2015 James Fisher of the Wargaming Waterloo blog and I came up with the idea of doing an online survey of all the Napoleonic Wargames that had been fought during the Bicentenary. In the end we had almost 50 respondents and over 300 battles reported on. There is some great data in there, not only on what scales and rules people were using, but also on how close the wargames were to the historical outcomes. You can read the results in the latest issue of Miniature Wargames and Battlegames (#396 - happens to be the Salute issue!). I'm now working with a military history academic to work up a more academic article based on the data.
