Good evening everyone,

I introduce my second creation on the Napoleonic Wars theme !

--------------------------------------------------

Long live the Liberator of Italy !

The Battle of the Bridge of Arcole was held from 15 to 17 November 1796 during the Italian Campaign. She opposed the 19,000 men of General Napoleon Bonaparte to 24 000 men of the Austrian army, commanded by General Joseph Alvinczy.

The French army is victorious and is securely attached in the north of the Italian peninsula. The siege of Mantoue continue, and the campaign ends in 1797 with the ousting of Austrians in the Italian peninsula.

This creation is inspired by the famous painting by Antoine-Jean Gros painted in 1801. ( http://www.napoleon.org/fr/popup_zoom.asp?identity=156450&type=object )

--------------------------------------------------

I hope you enjoy this creation as much as the first! :pir-classic:

Of course you can find it in my Flickr gallery : http://www.flickr.com/photos/thebrickavenger/

Lovely! The scene is very well presented, the decals are immaculate, and the little details like the pine trees, the dark brown on the bridge and the great expressions on the soldiers faces really add to the creation. Dark blue water also looks great.

I think you've managed to effectively combine history with the quirky fun of Lego. A great MOC! :thumbup:

Indeed. Topic closed. Still, it's a nice MOC :pir-classic:

Might as well merge two threads than having a short duplicate thread.

It will be my unbridled passion for Napoleon, but I really like both your dioramas
