28mm Command Stand: Ney, Marshal of France

Ney, Marshal of France
'Bravest of the Brave'

This is a command stand I put together in 28mm for gaming in some of the new 'Grande Manner' rulesets that have come out recently (Republic to Empire, Lasalle, Napoleon, Black Powder, etc.). This stand depicts Marshal Ney at the Battle of Waterloo leading the ill-fated cavalry charge on the Allied positions at Mont St. Jean.
The stand is composed of a set of Perry castings plus a Dragoon trumpeter from their plastic box. I used a round metal disc for a stand as I like the low-profile and the added weight it gives to groups of plastic figures.
