Re: French Line Chasseurs à Cheval 1813-1815

Don't forget the Big-Boots: Horse Grenadiers. I don't think anybody makes them.

Haven't HaT done a French Horse Grenadiers set?
I'm sure I have a few boxes..........somewhere!!!

Re: French Line Chasseurs à Cheval 1813-1815

Good idea

Hollywood has Cavalry charging at full gallop but the reality was more of a fast trot, so as to maintain unit cohesion and control.

Poses with sabre on shoulder are good given we have the reserve/resting sets well covered and very much appreciated

Hungarian Hussars and Prussian Kuirassiers and Landwehr are the last major horse units not covered in 1/72 plastic. Perhap start with them as complements Strelets existing ranges

Keep up the good work


Cheers

Re: French Line Chasseurs à Cheval 1813-1815

Count me in! I have been thinking about adding chasseurs à cheval de ligne to my french forces. The HAT ones, however, are indeed to small (and a bit basic in terms of sculpting and poses) while the italeri one's are way to big. The exact same thing could also be said about the Mameluks of the Guard: Hat to small and basic sculpting, Italeri waaaay too big.
