If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
Hi. New to forum.
What about the Netherlands? No Dutch/Belgian Carabiniers or Hussars. Only the Light Dragoons have been made....then only the one sort.
Maybe not related to "heavy" cavalry but I think a good decent set of British Hussars & Light Dragoons also need be made. Not at full charge but either standing awaiting orders or at the walk preparing to charge. Swords drawn. No standard bearers though!
If did do the heavies,should be at the charge to recreate the Union Brigade charge. Scots greys with UNCOVERED head dress i think would sell well. May not be historically accurate but they would look fantastic!
Ask yourself, are they any use in the Desert 1941/43 if answering yes carry on campaigning , if No , give yourself a stern talking to and then ask for something of use like LRDG or SAS , or Africa Korp tank crew or heavy weapons, none of you have tables big enough for MORE cavalry anyway :joy:
The Chevrolet in LRDG service had a crew of three, so six figures would give me two trucks, and I don`t need a big table for that in 1/72. To be fair I don`t wargame, more of a diorama (small) builder, but I no longer have room for a big table having surrendered to big spare bedroom to the boss as another guest bedroom, I am confined to the small bedroom as a hobby space, and that gives me about enough room for me a painting table work bench and my downsized collection.
Errrrm HaT have already done the Horse Grenadiers
Yes, we know. It is an adequate set. The figures look much better painted. The horses are useful for other units too (such as Empress Dragoons prior to having the three-tiered pistol cover).
This is in the greedy, "we want it all" line of having a *fabulous* set of the 'big heels'! I have the Old and Young Guard versions represented, but would happily make another, bigger unit if a fantastic set came along—in some dreamed of future!
