Those who regularly visit the blog would have seen I was rearranging a few figures to represent some command stands suitable for 1814 style games which saw Marshall’s leading corps of not much more than divisions at times. It was also a good opportunity to revisit the footprint of other command stands so they take up a more appropriate amount of space on the table.

I’m very pleased to see how they have all turned out. It’s hard at times to find the tight mix of castings to look the part on some of this stands however it worked out well at the find.
I have quite a few more yo get sorted as well as engineers and pioneers sets to undercoat and paint up. Then a bit of work getting the marines of the Garde sorted as well. Should be some interesting painting ahead.
