    Is it just me or does Napolean look like a past his prime 35 (random# no offence to you hip 35 year olds) year old going thru his mid life crisis. Just imagine him with a beer belly, a tad less hair, and a pound more neck fat.

    Napoleon was never the kind of model that substitutes these days for actors in films. He was a paunchy, short, palsied man with great cynicism, native shrewdness, and a quiet intensity that made others nervous. Usually for good reason.

    Wonderfully described.

    BTW, don't y'all agree that Napoleon would've looked far better as a skunk? =^_^=

    It's the head and tail of a puppet from an online catalog, photoshopped together with a screen grab of Napoleon. :) It resembles me very closely, though the stripe down my nose is thinner and I have very long headfur rather than the military kind.

    "Folkmanis" is the puppet's manufacturer. I tried to buy one at a local mall on the 13th for my mate, but they were out so I ended up getting a raccoon (also very cute).

    I don't think old Nappy was exceptionally short, it was more the tall aristocrats he had to associate with that made him look short.

    The game's characature of him falls a little short of depicting a leader for whom hundreds of thousands of men (who were stone cold sober) would willing march into almost certain death. Even those who hated him apparently respected him greatly. I guess if it were not for the Duke we'd all be speaking French and celebrating Mardis Gras.

    Napoleon cant be called a slob next to some others in this game.

    I mean, every time you open up a diplomacy window with Alexander, he has to hurriedly stop picking his nose in order to talk to you.
