We have a couple of Napoleon vignettes between us plus a single Front Rank model Napoleon painted by Ian Staples which is staggering to behold. The other two are sets of Foundry tiddlers, one mounted, one set on foot with the grumpy bugger sat on a drum or something at Borodino. I wanted a more modern set of variable size hence the three separate bases which all work individually or as groupings depending on the space available and type of game.
The models here are all Perry sculpts and very nice they are too.
All brush work is by Tony Laughton, basing by me!
|Marshall Soult doffs his cap to Ali...|
|Ali very much keeps his turban on his head!|
|All that gold braid and silk pantaloons; fashion has lost its way of late I feel.|
|The great captain looking a little worried possibly.|
The horse's nose and muzzle are excellent.
|General Staff and ADC. I love the pat on the neck this guy is giving his horse which seems to appreciate|
his masters reassurance.
Great sculpt - very natural.
|The two side bases had slightly more basic paint jobs but are none the less striking.|
|The duty officer from the Chasseur a cheval of the Guard is a French engineer officer with a snazzy paint job.|
|Same group different angle, love the leopard skin here. The dappling on the horse hasn't blown up quite as well.|
|The whole ensemble from above right, this looks great.|
|Excellent picture in my view and about life size - I want to sit behind these and send my armies to victory!|
PS We have just started a three part game with some clever back ground & plotting on maps etc - juicey battle reports to follow I hope.
