Entry #7 to the AHPC - 28mm Napoleonic French Officer During the Retreat from Russia, 1812

This week, for the Challenge's 'Epic Fail' theme, I returned to a project I began a few years ago. It depicts a campaign which I think easily fits the theme: the 1812 French retreat from Russia.

So here is a single figure of a French officer, ragged and cold, in the midst of attempting to rally his comrades. In my mind's eye I see breath misting, desperate figures shuffling through the snow, and the ominous shadows of Cossacks emerging from a distant treeline.

28mm figure by Perry Miniatures and I would argue one of their best sculpted ranges.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great week!
