Napoleon at Borodino - Old Wargames Foundry Set
As I'm re-basing most of my stuff, figured I'd go ahead and multi-base an old Foundry set of Napoleon and his staff that had been painted several years ago. They were on washers, and it was always a hassle moving them around - never really used them in a game either. So I figured they might as well go on a large base as a group. Napoleon himself is depicted as in a painting of him watching the Battle of Borodino.
The plywood base is about 3 1/4" in diameter, and was bought from Michael's.
Flanking Napoleon would be his Mameluke servant, Roustan, on the his right, and an ADC on Bertheir's staff on his left. Marshal Berthier stands behind the Emperor with a notebook at the ready. Other marshals and staff surround them also.
The light blue uniform is worn by chief ordinance officer Gaspard Gourgaud. A Chasseur a Cheval body guard is to his rear.
A couple of Marshals conduct some map reading; to their flank a division ADC as indicated by his red armband.
