Today I finished basing John's French commanders. These 25 figures will command his divisions, corps, and army.
Marshals (Lannes, Davout, Generic)
All 25 Figures
Only the artillery stands between me and 800 French and minor nation infantry!
Lannes and Davout are certainly my favorite Marshals - both men of ability and character. They weren't friends, but as far as I know they weren't enemies, either! A great set of high command, there Scott. We recognize Lasalle in the ranks of the Generals, too!ReplyDelete
Well spotted! I think LaSalle is the only named general among that bunch.Delete
Those look fantastic! Soult was always my fave, but he's never dramatic enough to stand out.ReplyDelete
I think Davout has a unique appeal to wargamers. I am partial to Masséna.Delete
Lannes was a close friend of the Emperor. Napoleon was with Lannes when he died. The Emperor held his hand to the end and wept.ReplyDelete
Very touching and sad.
I like that story.Delete
Fabulous looking command stands Scott. That last photo of the entire staff together is a ripper!ReplyDelete
Of course, this Wednesday is the 200th anniversary of la mort de Napoleon.
I would have missed it! Thanks for the reminder.Delete
