If you like miniature battles and if you like them big, the Liphook Historical Wargames group is just what you're looking for. They're objective is to play as many major Napoleonic battles over the course of 2005-2015 and they are very much on course. These wargames will require between 25 and 50 commanders. Battles in the past have included Friedland, Wagram and Borodino.

This was just one of the four tables needed to play Friedland.
There about 30 people involved including 3 umpires

Their programme for 2013 is as follows:
