However one pose - shown in the photo from the Perry website as d'Erlon - was, while OK, and hard to see from this angle, has his sword resting on his arm at a odd-ish angle. And the sword was bent and could not be put quite straight again.
...off with the sword. I was hit with inspiration and quickly got out the 'green stuff' and started to model what I hoped would be a good representation of a basket of small red fruit held in his hands resting on the pommel of his walking horse.
This was to be Marshal Grouchy as he was said to have been eating strawberries, hearing the cannon fire to east but, having his orders, refused to march to the sound of the guns leaving Napoleon to his fate at Battle of Waterloo (la Belle Alliance).
Hopefully any of the poor 'chop work' and sculpting will be covered by my thick paint brushwork.
