Général de Brigade Baron Campi
Campi commanded the 2nd Brigade of 5th Division in Reille's II Corps. I've tried to find out something about this chap but have drawn a blank. There may well be something in Digby Smith's "Napoleonic Wars Databook", but I can't find my copy so can't check at the moment. Anyway, this chap led his brigade through the atack at Quatre Bras and, I think, was then wounded at Waterloo. This figure is a Perry Miniatures personality figure, and the casualty is from the Perry plastic heavy cavalry box set. The barn in the background is by Paul Darnell of Touching History. In close-up Campi's face looks a bit messy, but he looks ok from a distance...
