The Russian "Old Man" at the Battle of Borodino

I could no longer resist and picked up the Russian High Command.  While this Perry pack has some 8 Generals and aides on foot around the seated Kutusov,  I decided to not make that special stand ( and which would have been wholly oversized.... ) but set up some of the others to be the army headquarters in the usual size of our HQ stands for the later battles of 1813-14 after the old Commander died.  You can tell it is him by the white cap.

The "old man" directing the battle several miles from the front.  However at the Battle of Borodino,  Napoleon positioned himself similarly and both conducted the battle in a rather distracted manner.

  1. Nice work! Agree that these command sets can take up far too space, this seems a sensible compromise though.
