This is stirring stuff, probably the most inspiring / nostalgic Napoleonic wargaming blogthat I' aware of.

I used to enjoy Napoleonics games when these were our armies….

Lovely stuff.

We need a "love" and "nostalgia" emoji.

Great looking! I notice they are clearing the way for the "great man" behind them crossing the bridge.

Darrell. Definitely agree there. When the game and spectacle were the thing, and slightly before the internet made "us" obsess about making everything suitable for a close up photo on the web 😉

I hadn't followed the construction of th eofficer before, until now. Very imaginative use of parts to make a one-off figure that fits in like the miss8ng jig saw piece. Lovely stuff

The Great Man indeed and I think that is Napoleon next to him.

Did you spot the Airfix Country Cottage behind?

These figures could all stand very close up photography, not just the magnificent officer. Look at the lacework on all, the shabraque edging, the sabretache straps, the boot toppings on every trooper. Brilliant work.
