Not sure I have ever seen the French Staff shown en masse like this….and how wonderful they do look.

I recognised almost every figure as they all sit in my lead pile. The reason? I bought many a French senior officer set purely for the horses and saddlery. (All to do with various projects that needed walking horses for heavy cavalry).


But then I was intrigued by this chap.

Show me what may be a unique conversion and I am caught/captivated/entranced. So who is he? Colbert I thought. Naw, you could never correct for the arm in a sling. The officer of Guard Lancers? Naw, too much effort to change the lapels etc. The Chasseurs a Chev de la Garde. Naw. Too much lace. Got it I thought!


Maybe he is the Perry Occifer of Line Chasseurs in cylindrical shako, but now with a Colpack and magnificent plume?

Whatever, he is really unusual and genius (as is the highlighting of the green)

Or is he a Perry limited edition that came out at the release of the plastic chasseurs?????? Never mind if so. He is still "different". I seem to recall now such being shown


One more chap I did not recognise and I knew the horse was not Perry. He looks like Paul Hicks work to me so I thought Murawski or Brigade Games Miniatures.

Are you referring to the bit where you quite clearly say "More generals. Left figure on the central base is the free Colonel Marbot figure you get when you buy 3 boxes of Perry plastic Chasseurs."?

OK………I admit. I of course looked at all the pics, gobsmacked, without reading all the text. (and I am the first to moan when someone posts and fails to tell us where the figures come from, plus what scale).


Well even if it only pushes you back to the top, so someone else might see these. Marbot is superbly painted and Paul Hicks' work is instantly recognisable (even if I always think the sword wrist should be rotated 180 degrees. Same figure pose appears in the Zastrow Cuirassiers. Really unusual and inspired, but he needs thumb down. (not your problem)


The painting? Anyone can do a Mameluke. You cannot lose. The trick is to do the shading on a boring grey coat on an Emperor. Or again Marbot's subdued green rig. Brilliant
