We saw their planned release of him seated, the classic post Waterloo despondent look. Here is "the Great Thief of Europe", as Christopher Plummer termed him, looking a bit more confident

Very nice. Is it me, or is he sitting a bit far back in the saddle? The piles, perhaps.

Slightly different view sent to me tonight.

He is nice and I do like the horse. They can be a bit thick in the chest and narrow in the rear, based on the original masters, but this one does work really well.

Arguably the best sculpt of the great man available .
Very realistic and having him seat slightly backwards is a masterclass .
I have had piles and they can be very painful especially as ł like a hot curry . Naturally you would sit this way , when ł ride my bike when the dreaded
curse strikes I tend to follow a similar position.
I will certainly pick one up to command and upgrade my old mini figs 1812 army .

Mind you, he also had pyelonephritis and cystitis. There are rumours about his prostate, but, in those days, no-one knew about that organ or its functions. Leaning forwards would be no fun. Leaning backwards would be worse, with haemorrhoids (UK spelling)

I have, so far, been spared such complaints, thanks be to God! But suspect I would be standing to watch the battle regardless.

A Chicken Marengo does sound a better prospect than a really nice Vindaloo, in that case

Great figure, but even Napoleon knew to hold the reins in his left hand.
