About a year ago I bought a bag of assorted 15mm minis from one of TMP member at bargain price. Unfortunately seller cant remember manufacturers of these minis, because he bought them years ago. I've identified almost all of these minis but have problem with 7 cuirassier figs.

I suppose these are 15mm Minifigs Napoleonic figures, but I can identify the faction. Firstly I thought these are French carabiners or cuirassiers, but hese photos from Minifigs site shows different horses and long decorative furry stick on right side of helmet. My minis dont have this thing but instead a strange small decoration similar to 3 leaves.

Please help me to identify these minifigs. Maybe the paint scheme will help you (this are not my paintjob but seller painjob). I really waht to paint these figs but I must know who are they. I also want to buy a command pack for them.

How about Dutch-Belgian Carabinier?

I think Pedrobear is right. It look exactly like Austian cuirassier. Helmet with green tri-leave is the same.
Dont think its Dutch-Belgian Carabinier because there is no carbine, but still Davout1972 many thanx.

Thanx to all for helping!!!!!!!

Is the top figure Saxon?

Thw extra height on the helmet makes me think that it is a Reusian Kirisir

I think I have this figure , its an austrian cuirassier figure.
The high crest is just a modern minifigs sculpting syle as my older austrian minifigs dragoons crest is smaller.
You can just about make out the austrian style water bottle though the shabraque is square on my figs as well instead of the correct pointed as in Pedrobear's picture.

2 SVP001 – yes its square on my fig. ANd leaves are same as on the Pedrobear's picture. Thatnk guys! Now I can start painting them :)
