Well done! I like when artworks give inspiration for MOCs.

Will you expand it with other details from the painting?

Very nice work indeed. I do miss the flag in the painting though, or did I not see it?

Doing a quite larger scene with the guns at the left and the storming troops on the left would be a nice thing for the future ....

Good work but I can't see the flag on the painting. I see you have used custom decals for the torsos. Are they from the EB library?

No, most of them are my own work, based on some starting work from mosana or michael evans.

One recreation study as povray render ....

The story in short is:
It happend during the french offensive 1809 through the Kanaltal. The Austrian forces were ordered back and the defenders got the task to hinder the french corps as long as possible.
They did it for some days with a corps of less then 300 soldiers. After all the french stormed the fort with the help of one troop searching their way trough the mountains in the back of the defenders.
That's why it's called the Austrian Thermopyles, since the end of the story reminds to the greek story.
The 300 soldiers had a loss of 80 dead and further 80 wounded whereas the 17th may was reported with 1300 dead and wounded by the french.
