'L'amour' from MilesR - 'Boney's Love of Campaigning'

 The topic for the L'amour challenge had me stumped for awhile.  How does one deal with the finer emotions of life in a scale miniature without, well, coming across as totally creepy.

I then realized that perhaps I could go another way and present there was likely no greater love than Napoleon being on campaign.

Plus I always wanted a Napoleon army command stand!

 The miniatures are 28mm scale metals from the Perry line (as is the table).  It's a great little vignette and was a lot of fun to paint up.  The map is, of course, a scale representation of the Battle of Wagram at exactly 7:15 pm July 5th, 1809.

Ok it's not really, it's really just some made up lines and blotches of color.
I'm really running low on Perry's and need to restock!

I've also been putting a lot of work into my submission for the Nautical challenge but may have bitten off more than I can chew on that one.


  1. Nice little scene. Well done. cheers

  2. You can't go wrong with a Boney. Very nice Miles. I really must get one of these for myself.

  3. Thanks for the comments - the perry Waterloo stuff is really the best there is

  4. Very nice vignette, lovely map you've done there too!

  5. Most excellent work, Miles! A great tribute!

  6. Nice vignette Miles and an interesting, stretching interpretation of the theme :)

  7. Grand vignette, Miles! I really love the map!
