Prince Józef Antoni Poniatowski

Back to 1812-13, here is a diorama (or future Command base) of Polish General Prince Józef Antoni Poniatowski. He is accompanied by General Jan Henryk Dabrowski and two Polish ADC's. Both generals served together in the 1812 campaign and at Leipzig where General Poniatowski perished.

The figures are, unusually for my collection, by Front Rank. I liked the subject matter and was willing to accept the slighter larger scale of the figures. The amazing uniforms were painted for me by Leuthen Studios.
