    I have a question. Your model is "Jean Louis Brigitte Espagne". But I find other model on Pegaso site. His name is "Etienne M.A. Champion Count of Nansouty" (I have this model at home) . I see, that the uniforms are identically...colours,ornamentation, hat atc.
    Are they different? I think yes. But why the identically uniform? I´m sorry for the question but I´m not a Napoleon-uniform-specialist. I´m only painter ;)

    Thank you for your time...

    Hi Paul - Babis - Stephen - Marc and Francis
    Thanks Gusy for your comments and Visit ....... I are well Apreciate This.

    For Milan - You have reason us to be no difference in fact are not both commanders of the same regiment....... if you see in my piece I have used the Arms and the sword of Nasouty.
    Some small difference is in the tails of the dress that are sewn said "Agrafè"

    Salute to all MAB :)

    Hi Milan,
    What did it mean: I'm only a painter? If you have an historical interest putting this question, it's already a good sign, you are not only a painter. By the painting or the sculpting of figures, you must entry in the history. I believe it's more interesting to know what man you have in your hands, his life, his death, his uniform, not only give some touches of brush and colour, ok?
    Having done to Maurizio the historical research for the two figures of Espagne and Nansouty, I can give you the answer. Yes, the two men dress the same uniform, being both generals of division of Cuirassiers. This means that these generals had the command of a division (two brigades of two regiments each, total four regiments of cavaliers). Another famous general of Cuirassiers using a similar uniform was for example D'Hautpoul. Espagne was also charged to study a project for a new cuirass and helmet for generals of heavy cavalry, never ended. During the campaign of Russia in 1812, Nansouty had the command of the first Corps of Cavalry, three Divisions of mixed Cavalry, the Heavy C. formed by Cuirassiers and Carabiniers, and the Light C, formed by regiments of Hussars, Chasseurs and Lancers. These great generals of Heavy Cavalry often kept the bicorn hat, instead to use the helmet, to distinguish themselves from the other officers with the helmet.
    Best regards

    Maurizio and Emiliano,

    Thank you very much Marcello.
    I´m very sorry. You are right. I´m not only painter. Truth is when I begin paint some new figure I learn history about this model. The colour scheme, equipment, accessories, history etc. I buy books, journals, magazines and watch on internet.
    And now I know about history more then when I began whit this hobby.
    My specialist is old Japan. Samurai in 900-1876 era. And respect for all people who knows the Napoleon army and history...so many regiments, uniforms, troops, equipments....whou...realy respect...
    Thank you once again Marcello

    Very well Milan,
    Now I recognize a good cavalier. Your theme is also complicated, I bought some books on Samurais, and their costumes, their philosophy of life, their way to fight are very interesting. And the armours...a real enjoyment to paint. I'm a bit ticklish about Samurais, if you looked at another thread on "References", you can see I'm yet riding to the Far East. In that site "Samurais archives", there is a link to another site, where explain how is builded a samurai armour, from the kabuto, the domaru, the sineate, to the feets. If you don't know this site (Wagakashira?) it's really amazing.
    All the best

    Ciao Maurizio
    quest' ultimo lavoro e` fantastico.Non ho parole per descriverlo.
    La pittura e` incredibile.Non riesco a credere che la coperta del cavallo non e` vera.Sembra fatta di lana.Mi potresti dire che colori sono stati usati per dipingerla(se puoi).
