Michel NEY, duc d'Elchingen, prince de La Moskowa, maréchal de France


Michel NEY, duc d'Elchingen, prince de La Moskowa, maréchal de France, with ADC colonel Heymes and ADC Levavasseur. The figures are by Perry, painted for me by Leuthen Studios.

Maréchal Ney commanded the Left Wing of the Armee du Nord in the Waterloo Campaign.

  1. That is a great composition. A great sense of motion and urgency is given by both the ADC and Ney's mount about to gallop off the base.

    I like it!

  4. Cincinnatus,

    Thank you! Leuthen Studios did a nice job here. I think the quality and detail in the Perry sculpting made it possible. I just wish Perrys would sculpt a few more new horses.
