"What is Ney doing?! Charging without infantry support?!"

Not bad, not bad.

To this day, some historians claim that the outcome of Waterloo was more Ney's fault than anything else. I don't entirely agree...if Napoleon had sent in his grosse bottes a bit earlier, perhaps he might have won. But who can tell at this point? Anyways, nicely done. Though Liebegirl is right about the leading horse's legs, their position only adds to the piece's excitement. Leave 'em as they are.

No-one can tell. Those are only speculations and tons of papers were filled by this topic...and they will be still.
No worries, this piece will never be fixed, it's too old now. And I would love to do some better version one day, so I can see if I've improved or not x)

You know it was Cambronne that uttered that famous word at Waterloo, not Michel Ney, right?

Aha! I thought you were ascribing the famous mot de bataille to old Carrot-top there. (Poor Ney, getting picked on because of his hair color!)

I used to do a LOT of Napoleonic history, so I can be a pedantic asswipe at times. :blush:

Yup, he had many funny nicknames.

Me too, but all the time haha xD I love to bore and mock people with that. But I'm also grateful when others correct me on something with which I'm not sure <:

Yeah, a few of 'em not for polite society. Hehe hehehe.

I have always loved history and I do a lot of research - it sometimes gets me into trouble though because I poke my nose EVERYWHERE, and I'm no longer young and/or cute enough to get away with it. XD

Hahah aww, but that's what a researcher must do, poke his nose everywhere! xD Even our professors at uni tell us to do it, if we want to have a good quality research, so the project/book can turn out pleasant (not like the tons of worthless so called historical books without any sense out there). I have this, I'm writting short stories of my nap soldiers charas and before I write anything, I need to do at least a small research to be historically correct. I'll never publish the stories, but I just have this feeling that it's the right thing. I want my stories to make sence D

Exactly!

I've got about 25 some-odd years into Napoleonic and still most of my books so if you need any small things, feel free to ask. I'm mostly cavalry and mostly cuirassiers, but I know most of the major personalities quite well.

Oh,Michel Ney? Such patriotic man, died for his country, even though the monarchy designed his end TT__TT

The end was sad, but commanding the firing squad by his own...priceless.

This almost looks like one of those classic pieces... even down to the incorrect (yet constantly depicted) gait of the horse. Great job!

Yes, I know about that mistake, this piece is 4 months old and shame on me, I didn't correct it still. But thanks for pointing it out! c: Tho horses on historical paintings sometime look...wrong :"D

LOL no problem, really. I thought that you'd done that on purpose to make it look more like the old paintings. Quite frankly, I think it would be a shame if you fixed it.
