Für ihre vierte Miniatur aus ihrer Soldiers of Fortune Reihe wechseln Warlord Games zum ersten Mal die Epoche.
Soldier of Fortune 004: The Emperor’s New ClothesNovember’s figure is a bit different, one of our finest ever figures (though we do say ourselves) -Napoleon Bonaparte in full coronation garb , with accompanying portrait artist.Following our run of ‘Rogue Heroes’ as our monthly Soldier of Fortune miniatures, we’re taking something of a step back in time with November’s model – arguably one of the most fortunate soldiers of all time, Napoleon Bonaparte! From his humble beginnings as a Corsican artillery officer, Napoleon would go on to become arguably the greatest general Europe had yet seen, and a legend in his own time. Oh, and Emperor of France, which isn’t bad going!
Portrait de l’empereur Napoléon Ier en robe de sacre by François Gérard, depicting the emperor Napoleon I at his coronation on 2 December 1804. The original is on display at the Palace of Versailles.
Any good ruler needs a properly impressive portrait, and Napoleon (now Napoleon I) was no exception. November’s Soldier of Fortune figure set (that’s right, it’s a two-fer!) depicts François Gérard in the act of creating the famous painting Portrait de l’empereur Napoléon Ier en robe de sacre in 1804-5, with the great man himself posing for the artist. Design Studio Painter Kirsten Williams has gone all-out with this fantastic scene, paying loving attention to the intricate details of the Emperor’s ornate clothing and displaying some truly exquisite freehand work – it was an honour to watch her work on this! Napoleon I as Emperor is a fantastic, strictly limited edition piece that is the perfect challenge for any painter looking to show off their skills, and a must-have for anyone with a Black Powder French army – you can’t not have the boss, after all!
Napoleon I is a busy man, and is only available during the month of November 2023. After that, his sitting will be finished, Gérard will retire to his studio, and the Emperor will head back out on campaign!
Don’t miss out on adding The Emperor’s New Clothes to your collection. The pair of figures provide a prime painting challenge, and are sure to take pride of place amongst your miniature collection. They could even serve as an ideal gift for the hobbyist in your life!
Snap up this month’s Soldier of Fortune, before the newly coronated Emperor disappears!
