Bonjour Chaps,

Apologies if this is already known about but I've been without proper internet access for 6 weeks.

Black Hussar have pictures of these on their Facebook page and fantastic they look too!



Can't wait to order some!

Will post an image or 2 if I can work out how!

Posting in did not work for me either.

Yes they did, I can see every picture and they look superb.

I have more than enough Gardes du Corps, from Eureka….heck, no I do not. one cannot have too many. One of my favourite uniforms of the era. I have long had the GMB standards for them and the Zastrow Cuirassiers and had planned the hussars and chevaulegers as my next project (if I ever get Adam's Brigade finished……..).

I just went to the site.
They are not yet listed.
Do you know when they will be available for sale?

Occurs to me that some folk might not be able to see the pictures so let me post them for you.

Fourth picture down. The chap on the right. Is he sheathing his sword…if so….how clever is that? I have never ever seen anyone try to model the action of drawing a cavalry sword….or the reverse as I assume here. Everyone does swords shouldered or mad charges…..inspired

Hello Mr. D.

Very nice but Revell beat them to it with their English life Guards in the OTS.

They have a very nice drawing sabre chap in their set.

Best wishes,

very nice figures, as far as the photo permit to see, the only knit pick, why are those trumpets so short???

See for example the Sauerweid plate showing a Saxon heavy cavalry trumpeter.

Never been too sure about this.

Apologies if a stupid question.

But did cavalry trumpeters use both a bugle and a trumpet? I almost have this memory that the trumpet was for parade and the bugle for serious signals. So the former stayed in Dresden and the latter appeared at Borodino.

But I have absolutely no evidence for this. Just something "I always knew"

I am not aware that the Saxon heavy cavalry regiments did it like you describe.
