French General of Division, 1810

Here's my latest. A Napoleonic French General of Division. Inspired by a study done by Edouard Detaille. Various accessories found it's way into this figure. The chapeau is a Historex piece with alot of modification. The sword, along with the animal head belt buckles, are also from Historex. The head, which fit the subject perfectly, is from Hornet. In fact the head, in my opinion, makes this particular figure pop. Any other head, from any other line, would have made this figure look rather boring. Thank you Mr. Saunders! For making such wonderfully character filled heads.
This figure unfortunately is a WIP. I cannot find documentation on the tails of this officers coat. Whether it had lace, false turbacks, etc. Or if the sash detail is correct. Till then...
