Re: "Now is the time for the heavy cavalry. I think."
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!
