Napoleonic vignettes & stuff

Past weekend saw the 2012 edition of Crisis in Antwerp, where we presented a game based on the battle of Aspern-Essling in 1809 between Napoleon's French and Archduke Karl's Austrians.

For this game I painted up a number of extra vignette and scenery figures. First off, Foundry's marvellous Bavarian looters with accompanying angry farmer (a Ral Partha Ravenloft 'angry mob' figure kindly donated by Phil). As an aside, the Bavarians were painted up as being from IR 11 Kinkel, inspired by the wonderful plate in Osprey MAA 106 featuring the soldier from that regiment dozing off on the job while holding a piglet (of unknown regimental lineage):

A vivandière (Warlord Games) and a fellow who has sampled too much of her wares (from the Foundry Blacksmith set):

And finally some French casualties (again Foundry):

  1. Excellent vignettes. I especially like the soldier chasing the chickens.
    BTW, we must remember for the next convention game to hand out some sort of quiz, encouraging visitors to look for these vignettes on table.
