General Joachim Jerome Quiot du Passage (on the right) and General Louis Binet de Marcognet (on the left). Both Perry Miniatures and come in the command pack with Prince Jerome Bonaparte. Lovely models to paint. The names of both are inscribed on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris:

This is a Foundry 28mm French Caisson. I got round to painting it after many months. The additional camp was from a bag of assorted Napoleonic figures I purchased at a bring and buy. I'm pretty sure they're all Front Rank models. The wood on the Caisson was painted Vallejo Gunship Green and then given a dark wash. Finally all the metalwork was touched up with Gunmetal Grey.

Prince Jerome command figure from Perry Miniatures. I decided to paint him in one of his white uniforms rather than the standard French Campaign dress. He was notoriously flamboyant, and as many already know, was chastised by his brother the Emperor for insisting on travelling "in State" with his entire court at the beginning of the Russian Campaign. He'll be great to use on the table when we play Waterloo again.
