On the ground floor of Dupplin152 you can discover DUPPLIN GAMING, where our affiliated business runs an unforgettable war gaming experience.
Dominating the room is the magnificent 10ft x 14ft table, which is in itself, a truly unique experience. There are upwards of two thousand 28mm figures on the terrain, which has been expertly sculpted and contoured to scale by Bryan Moodie and Paul Jenkins. To depict the battle as it was on 18th June 1815 as the French Grand battery of eighty-four guns open fire.
Here you can refight the battle as Napoleon or Wellington. It’s your chance to possibly change the outcome.
There are plenty of reinforcements too, for example, for Waterloo we have the complete Prussian 1st and 4th Corps, or the French 6th Corps and the Imperial guard for all those “What if” scenarios. (More of this later)
For a completely made to measure game, guests can choose to fight each other and we will supply the umpire, or you can fight on the same side and we will supply the opposition with one of our residential war-gamers and also provide the umpire.
Excellent access to the whole table is made easy, by sliding sections of terrain to produce two “gopher holes”. There’s lots of room to crawl under the table to emerge dramatically in the middle of the battlefield, behind enemy lines.
The whole table can be changed with some notice to refight other famous battles. THE BATTLE OF CULLODEN MOOR PERHAPS, or THE FIRST DAY OF GETTYSBURG are on hand to ensure a fascinating time. There are smaller, quicker skirmish fights too – Western gunfights are always popular.
DUPPLIN GAMING offers, for up to 4 guests, a war-gaming AFTERNOON, WEEKEND, OR WHOLE DAY EXPERIENCE
Getting back to the room itself…The walls are covered in Militaria – Swords, guns,and Don Troiani ACW prints.
Where there isn’t a print, theres a glass fronted cabinet, housing thousands of beautifully painted 28mm figures. Some just waiting to join the action on the table. Incuding:-
The complete Prussian 1st and 4th Corps
The French 2nd and 6th Corps,
The French Imperial guard
And the rest of the allied army.
