Ok - I received a complaint from the French Ambassador about unfair treatment - So here is the same deal for the French as the British received in the previous blog.
All the dis-mountable General Staff figures as a complete set. The only one I didn't purchase at the store is the last one - the ADC and I haven't yet stripped the paint of him! - unfortunately there were a few empty compartments in the drawers at the store when I visited it.


  1. Hi Ron

    Nice to see the HH French staff figures - one slight (and unworthy!) crib: Bessieres is the left end of the lower row - interestingly, the Hinton Hunter blog has the pictures of Bessieres and Soult transposed as well (I've been on at him for a while to fix that!), so if that's one of your references, it's dodgy in that case!

    Best regards - keep up the good work (kugw)


  2. No Tony you are WRONG!!......
    :) hehe - your comments are most worthy!! - I mixed up those two - with their similar pose - when I moved them all to another brighter position to photograph them - I had them in individual bags with their names originally. My eyes are not what they where and I am fighting getting eyeglasses! - I was not careful enough. Anyway I can't blame Clives site I didn't use it as a source this time!
    Thanks for pointing this out - I re-photographed them since I wanted to maintain the number sequence in the photo.
