Unwilling to surrender the Old Duke (who was in his late Eighties at the time) gathered his men..
The younger son? he took a contingent of men first to Austrian and then England where he became one of Napoleon's most implacable foes.
From Curt:Very cool back story Adam! I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to Napoleonics but I always love a good story. I applaud you on tackling these Victrix figures. I did a battalion of one of their early sets and almost lost my mind with assembling them (I think it was around 9 parts each). I really like the light grey greatcoats, red facings and tall bearskins - it makes for a very attractive unit.
Well done Adam!
