Re: The Best Napoleon?—the first of vingt et un

Great idea James and very well realised, I really like this.

I look forward to seeing the rest of the series.

My favourite Napoleon and Marengo is the Italeri mounted figure. I managed to get the now very rare Strelets Napoleon sitting with with his foot on a drum, which I think is a fabulous figure, but an army commander needs to be mounted and the Italeri figure does everything you need it to.

My Wellington, Blucher, and Major Henry Percy are also Italeri. Gneisenau is an Italeri figure with a Strelets head. Orange, Brunswick, and Picton are from Waterloo 1815. But Uxbridge, Hill, De Lancey, Richmond, Ney, Grouchy, Bulow, and sundry other personality figures are all from Strelets. And wonderful figures they are too.

Boots too Alan! :)

Thanks all for your supportive comments.

Bonaparte and staff at Castiglione, based on the painting by Boguet, is next in line. I have spent time this morning doing some prep. and simple conversions for a stand for Marengo, based on detail from Lejeune's famous painting, which will be number five in the 'series'.

Speaking of Castiglione. There was an 1/72 Republican general Bonaparte by Bruno Arnal ...

I have used an Imex Washington from the "George Washington's Army" as the basis (and a figure from the Accurate "American Militia" for Pont a'Arcole). Improvising and adapting are all part of the fun for me.
