Hi all,

Here's is the full vignette I put together combining Onira Miniatures' four Austerlitz sets.

As some of you may have noticed, the whole vignette idea is freely based on Canton Woodville's painting which titles the vignette. We've tried to mend some historical inaccuracies, and adapt the painting's two dimension view to 3D †(tricky that is!).

Huge close up shots are really unforgiving with the brushstrokes in this small-scale figures, but I think they are helpful for those who may want to examine how I work on this scale, and how results are achieved.
In any case, I hope you like how it's turned out.

Thank you for watching

I look at it and think "that's good ". Then I see the guy's thumb and think "no, that's really good".

Love this work of art

I would put it way beyond "really good". More like "unbelievably magnificent". I'm going to save these pix to use to motivate myself in my own painting efforts. WELL DONE!

This just emphasizes my inadequacies as a painter. Beautiful work.

and the poster apologises for the brushstrokes and how they stand up to this magnification.

I confess I would be "well pleased" if I could achieve this1 Very well pleased.

The thumb encourages me that they are truly nearer to 28mm than the sometimes confusing home site suggests. Heck, even if significantly bigger, what display items these figures are!

The posing, I can't help but imagine the hangers-on thinking "Empereur or not, I wish he would stop these non stop selfies".

It can't get much better than this on 28mm.

Just stunning – I cannot imagine ever attaining even a tiny fraction of this skill. True artistry.
