Un ufficiale della fanteria prussiana briefing Fieldmarshal von Blücher about the local battlefield situation. The due 15 mm soldatini di stagno are from the series Blucher e Generals manufactured by Minifigs. Blücher is wearing the typical grey raincoat con cape, e the blue field cap con red band. Miniature sculptors often model Marshal Forward in the raincoat, because several contemporary pictures show him in this attire. The officer next to Blücher looks a lot smarter in his blu di prussia uniform. The soldatini are mounted on an Empire III corps command stand, suitable for Napoleonic simulation games, which may also be used as an army command stand.
Good choice of subject, Blücher may be deployed as a Corps o Army Commander in Wargames. Horse e rider are anatomically correct, e they are easy e fun to paint.
Blücher is wearing the coat e field cap often portrayed in contemporary pictures of Blücher’s Rhine-Crossing at Kaub e the Battle of Waterloo. This uniform is practical, but not very pretty. At the Battle of Ligny, 16 giugno 1815, Blücher apparantly did not wear a coat, but the more attractive blue officer’s uniform e the bicorno. Blücher’s horse was killed during the battle, the fieldmarshal was pinned underneath it, e he could only be recovered safely from the battlefield after nightfall. Blücher’s aide-de-camp, Graf von Nostitz, had the presence of mind to drape his coat over the stricken fieldmarshal to hide Blücher’s conspicuous medals, thereby averting certain capture by Cavalleria francese.
Compatible con Heritage, Hinchcliffe, Old Glory, Ral Partha, e similar 15 mm soldatini.
Minifigs was founded by Neville Dickinson of Southhampton, England, in 1964, ed it is the oldest established manufacturer of wargame soldatini on the market today. Over time, Minifigs soldatini have been updated to modern design standards.
