Westfalia Miniatures, who produce a whole load of rather nice late Napoleonic sets that are well away from "mainstream" fare. This set represents a couple of peasants dragging away a wounded French fusilier on a type of wheelbarrow. I think the inspiration comes from the German campaigns of 1813, but I see no particular reason why this vignette cannot be added to my 1815 collection. The French casualty looks like he's wearing an unbuttoned 1812 Bardin jacket, but as I recently noted with some Foundry French infantry it can sometimes be difficult to tell whether the figures are wearing pre- or post-1812 uniform. He's sitting on straw and being wheeled by a couple of civilian types. The engravings pictured on the Westfalia Miniatures site show women pulling the wheelbarrows, so I added some thread to represent rope. The sculpting of this set is superb, and the Paul Hicks figures have very characterful faces. The farmhouse in the background of the photos is from Paul Darnell of Touching History (an excellent model-maker who is much missed from the wargaming scene).
3 figures. Painted February 2013.
