Black Powder French Command Stands

Ready for the game later this month, two more French command stands. The Cuirassier will command the brigade with heavy cavalry and Lefebvre-Desnouettes will be the overall commander. Although Lefebvre-Desnouettes was captured in 1808 and never returned to the Peninsular, he'll continue to command the French for Black Powder purposes.
The Guard Artillery officer and two musicians are also Front Rank figures; the remainder are from Foundry's Napoleon & Staff set. Granted the guy with the spy scope is a Marshal, but let's just say he's helping Lefebvre-Desnouettes out - making sure he doesn't get caught by the British.
The ADC has a red arm band signifying he's on the staff of a general of division, so he must be just delivering a message to the general of brigade.
Comparison shot per a TMPer's query:
