From that fateful day in 1815 the faces of 'Boney' and the 'Iron Duke' gaze across the field of battle. Will the English square prove as redoubtable again or will the French cuirassiers win the day? We recommend playing these pieces on a 20" board.

  • King: (4" tall) Duke of Wellington
  • Queen: Lady Wellesley, his wife
  • Bishop: Drummer Boy
  • Knight: Dragoon of the 21st Lancers
