Virgin of Smolensk Vignette

virgingroup-800x600.jpg

On the evening of September 6th 1812 the Russian Black Virgin of Smolensk religious icon was paraded before the Imperial Russian Army to steel their resolve for the horrors that would follow at the Battle of Borodino the next morning.   Continuing our release of themed “vignettes” for our Napoleon’s Europe product range, First Legion has captured this moment with a striking group of 7 new stunning figures including a priest, a boy assisting the priest with the stunning flag, a dismounted Hussar, 2 soldiers kneeling praying, and a soldier and militia figure toting the Virgin of Smolensk Icon.   To expand the display, add NAP099 Russian Staff Set and a wonderful composition of Napoleonic Russian figures emerges depicting this event with the striking quality that only First Legion provides.
