A Napoleonic vignette.
This French mounted Hussar and Drummer Boy on a terrain base are sculpted by Richard Bailey in resin and white metal at 90mm, from http://www.bonapartesmilitarymodels.co.uk
They’ve been photographed against two different backgrounds for effect. For exhibition I’ll place them on a square base of African padauk wood, as it has the red-cast of mahogany but with a little more grain on view. Painting reference for the 7th Regiment is from “The French Hussars, 1804-1812”, by Andre Jouineau.
