For my latest work ive been making an army based on the french revolutionary army. This is my Napoleon figure before he was emperor. From 1796 to 1797 he led a victorious campaign in northern Italy, which made his name and set him on his path to glory. Im going to use this figure in a moc of the battle of Arcole where he led his men, flag in hand, across the bridge under heavy fire.

Ah, Napoleon before he got his hand stuck in his coat :pir-classic:
Although the yellow lines on his hat could have been a bit more smooth(?), the decal is a piece of art and it's a nice combination of colours.
Really good job!

Excellent figure, did you base it on a real drawing/painting?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!
