Are you questioning my sanity ( can any grown man who
plays with toy soldiers be considered sane?)? If you go back a little bit on this post Strelets Team is asking us if there are any French line cavalry units we would like to see.
I would love to see French line lancers,chasseurs but I also think most of France's cavalry units have been covered by other manufacturers.Maybe Strelets team is systematically going to cover various other nation's cavalry units in the future.They seem to be on a French cavalry wave at the moment.There's no harm
in asking is there?
Re: Future French Lancers with "Czapka Cap" Crimean & French-Mexican War
If I may add after the fact, I'd love to see French Lancers who also wore the Czapka four-pointed cap. The example of thinking of was in the movie "Major Dundee" with Charlton Heston and Richard Harris. These were French military stationed in Mexico before and during the American Civil War, I suppose at the end of the Maxamillian era in Mexico.
The Czapka these Lancers wore were smaller, but very beautiful looking. The uniforms are simple. I hope these Frenchmen could be used for other campaigns also !!!
