Peter Stuart Ney

North Carolina math teacher and one time Prince of Moscow. Of course, I'm jesting on the myth that Marshal Michel Ney, the Bravest of the Brave, faked his death by firing squad in December 1815 and secretly made his way to the United States. In any case, here is a nice new sculpture of him by Mike Owen. He is flanked in the photo below by a pair of stands of Perry and Victrix plastics for comparison.
I received the figure from Pat Lowinger who picked it up at his recent Adepticon sojourn. Thanks, Pat! The figure can be painted up rather quickly as the only area needing some effort is the face. The greatcoat covers most of the rest of the figure. I got a little creative and sprinkled on some spackling powder on the base.
The figure is being sold by Gorgon Studios.

  1. An interesting take on an over exposed subject and nicely executed. Although it does remind me of old hippie friends and their Afghan coats, none of them sported such a handsome bicorne.
    Best regards HGA.

  2. Thanks, HGA; yes, that well-worn coat must've made an impression then too. I read a memoir of a survivor of the campaign. He wrote that a town mayor referred to him as "one of those Moscow bums." Dean

  8. Thanks again for the kind words and interest. It is a very nice figure and has me thinking of adding some other figures with a tattered look. Best, Dean
