Napoleon Vignette

A quick one today ... one of the things I'm working on for my Napoleonic games is a bunch of new scatter terrain for the horse and musket period.  Along with that, I'll have lots of casualties for my armies (30-40 each) that I'll use to litter the field of battle (along with dead livestock, horses and destroyed guns) - and I'm adding a lot of extras and vignette's to the field.  This includes supply wagons, carts, ambulances, a field forge, and more.

The first of these is Napoleon himself.  This is a great set from Perry Miniatures.  Pictures below of the completed model.





More to come as I make more progress.  The Waterloo game we are pushing towards should be visually impressive if all goes to plan - partly because of all the extras I'll have on the table.

    2. I took a look, and that's not a bad deal. I'm afraid I will have to un retire to keep up with you though;)

  4. Am I the only one looking at the map and trying to figure out what's going on? Looks like an encircling maneuver and red is about to have a very very bad day? Not familiar enough with Nappos to know if that's a particular battle, but . . . I have a funny feeling it is.

    In any case, they look bloody fantastic! Well done!
