Another early preview from the lads…..with the promise ready for Salute.


picture

To quote them;


First shots of plastic Chasseurs a Cheval
Fresh from Renedra we have the first shots of the main Chasseur (trooper) frame. Renedra just need to tweak a few small bits but this frame is done, the command frame is well on its way. So everything will be ready for Salute.
Alan has put a few of these together to show the poses and uniform variations you will be able to achieve which you can see on our facebook page.
The figures in this box will represent Line Chasseurs a Cheval from 1808-15. Four uniform variants are covered; campaign and full dress for 1808-12 and campaign and full dress for 1812-15. During this period the coat changed from the single breasted Kinski coat to the lapelled Spencer coat around 1812 although the latter probably took a while to replace the former. Both types are presented in this set, along with elite company uniforms. The figures in the Kinski coat can also be used as Hussars in campaign dress. As you can see there are multiple arm poses and many head gear variants.
There will be a free metal figure of Colonel Marbot of the 23rd Chasseurs a Cheval (which of cause could be painted as any Chasseur colonel) if you buy three or more sets direct from us online and at Salute.

Thanks deadhead! To bad I already have 4 regiments of Elite Miniatures Chasseurs.

That must be the challenge for anyone investing a fortune (as is needed for plastic figures) in a new range. At least for lancers and chasseurs a cheval you could (could) have many units. 4 regts of C a Cheval I must admit does seem adequate

But I the end there is that need for balance, ie far more of the boring Ligne Infantry

Can I justify 3 boxes I do not need or want for the Marbot who is rather sweet….

Can we run some kind of sweepstake?

Who can guess closest to the day and hour (PST) when Tango will post this on Discussion?

I have not worked out the prize yet.

Bless him, without him, where would we be?(Grin)

BTW, think how little work would be needed to make these into lancers………possibly the cross belt for the musket/musketoon/carbine might be an issue?

They were the most common type of French cavalry, so should sell at least as many sets as any of the other cavalry to wargamers – though not to collectors who likely prefer the flashier Hussars and Cuirassiers. :)

Yeah, I already have tons of warlord's chasseurs but can still easily justify getting these as an upgrade. And you can't have too many cavalry regiments. :)

Footslogger14 Mar 2018 1:21 p.m. PST

I already have all I need.

And yes, I'll be getting a box.

I do agree, these will be an upgrade on the earlier released Plastic Chasseurs a Chev from Warlord. At least they have the rolled cloak over the right shoulder, as for cavalry……

I totally agree you cannot have too many cavalry regts, if you are a collector.

I have more Gendarmes d'Elite than Cuirassiers. I have more 2e Eclaireurs than French Line Infantry. But I do not throw dice……..

nickinsomerset15 Mar 2018 4:04 a.m. PST

I have as many as I need…..However I may need another 3 boxes, 9 units should be adequate!

Tally Ho!
