Set 84

I suppose they are Russian Dragons and Guard Cosacks for Borodino!

Re: Set 84

Is there 24 different figures or the same 12 at different angles ?

Re: Re: Set 84

The second set appears to have an Eagle standard, so I'm guessing they're French. Hard to tell though

The blue ones are French cuirasseir!

... Just my guess...

Re: The blue ones are French cuirassier!

I think they look more like Horse Grenadiers.
The Green ones look like they are wearing helmets.

Re: Re: The blue ones are French cuirassier!

They appear to be wearing some tall headdress- could be hussars or chasseurs? The top (green) ones don't have an eagle, so I'm guessing they're Russian dragoons or cuirassiers.

Re: Re: Re: The blue ones are French cuirassier!

Chasseurs Afrique in blue, the others in green - Russians.

Non...C'est Cuirassieurs et Grenadiers a Cheval -Poor Boris

But Really wish for Chasseurs D'Afrique and French Cavalry(Dragoons) Crimean

I admit,am getting so impatient for Tturkish Infantry.

Pity Boris yeltsin died today he sure was an international character.

Re: Non...C'est Cuirassieurs et Grenadiers a Cheval -Poor Boris

Well, they are listed as Napoleonics so they sure as hell aren't Chasseurs d'Afrique........

Re: Re: Non...C'est Cuirassieurs et Grenadiers a Cheval -Poor Boris

Oh, I've overseen this. Napoleonic French cavalry?
Well maybe good cuirassiers bigger than the small Esci and Airfix guys would be a good addition.
But the big head - ok, we need patience.


No Chasseurs Afrique ?

cheers
uwe

sure looks like french bearskins in there

But i was wrong with the russian dragoons(curseS). Guess Yuri is having alot of fun with our imaginations.

but just where are the Turkish Infantry Strelets.....

Awaiting imminent 9 box order (3-dragoons 3-don cossacks and 3-uhlans) be here soon from hannants.Poses another problem lots and lots of horse artillery now needed.

my bets: blue dragoons and green hussars

So we know napoleonic dragoons & hussars in winter dress will be shortly officialy announced here. The blue figures seem to have the comb of dragoons on the helmet. I don't think there is a french eagle on the banner, but a normal spear-tip. Some of the green figures miss weapons, probably because they are hussars with detachable lances. I admit the head-dress doesn't realy look like a kiver. I'm not concerned about the flag - Strelets provides them for all napoleonic cavalry.

Just my guesses

Re: my bets: blue dragoons and green hussars (OF COURSE - RUSSIAN)

Sorry, on my previous posting I didn't mention this. But the cavalry will be russian.
