THE NAPOLEONIC HQ CLICHÉ

Beitrag von Salaberry » Mo 28. Sep 2020, 16:28

Well, it seems I have succumbed to the one cliché I was trying to avoid from the beginning: building a diorama featuring Napoleon's HQ.
:oops:

To my defence however, the idea is to modify as much of what is out there - Italeri, Zvezda, Strelets, and other figurines in metal - (thanks Wolfgang!!) so that I can be forgiven.

We're not going to be on a battle ground, but rather in the days before a great offensive: I chose the Friedland campaign in Poland, so 1807.

Here's some stuff I have been working on in the last few weeks.

Comments and criticism welcome, as always.

Some super figures on display and that ADC mounting his horse is fantastic.

Best wishes,

Chris

So far it looks very impressive. The figure of Napoleon is probably one of the most realitic I've ever seen, what a great conversion. Am I spotting the head of that famous figure of him on horseback?
Can't wait how they come after painting.

You are the victim of your own fascinations.
But I think 1807 is a good choice: the most extrovert uniforms.
Nice figurines and I love your work on the details.

And, not to forget, very good sharp pictures.
It would be worth to crop them so the figurines fill up even more of the pic size: they are perfect enough for that.

More advances on this project: some valets of the imperial household.
And yes, the Napoleon figurine is a composite.
Just a couple more figures to scrtach-build, and then the painting process
Thanks for the compliments, y'all!
