Yes, Tango, I recall reading of his being lost at sea. I do not recall seeing much on the Miniatures Page, but ocean travel in the age of sale was a very perilous venture.

During the War of American Independence, the Hessian Bauermeister sent journals back to the Landgraf periodically, and merely mentioned a few times about a troop ship heading along the cost of the now US breaking up en route, with the loss of 2 companies of "such and such" regiment.

In the early 1800's, after years of captivity in Tripoli, American sailors captured by the Barbary pirates were sent home after being freed to the US on a single ship. It, too, was lost at sea.

Yeah, condemned to death after the Hundred Day's but escaped to the US.

He was given permission to return in 1822 but the ship he was on foundered off Ireland. Tough break.

Not a fan of the paint job.
And what self respecting French General would ever appear without his panache?

Who produces the 28MM figure?

Don't forget how unfortunate he could be even before then. Captured by British Light cavalry in Spain, leaning a group of Chasseurs a Cheval de la G Imp……!

Prisoner in England but escaped by breaking parole. All a bit dodgy in those days. He would surely have joined Ney and La Bedoyere up against a wall in 1815
