Yeah...they're teaching tools.

This is my annual Napoleonic diorama that I use to teach about warfare in the early 19th century. My freshmen are all suitably impressed, especially when they learned that I painted every miniature on the tabletop in under three months time.

I discuss tactics, Napoleon's generalship (and the extent to which he can be considered an innovator), and the role played by new concepts like nationalism and total war in the conflicts of the period.
