From Perry's Facebook page:

"First shots of plastic Line 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 and 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.

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."

The Marbot especially looks great! Wonderful addition.

That's a must for Salute. Especially the Marbot figure. I believe that he was the original model for Conan Doyle's Brigadier Gerard. (Whatever happened to that film?)

Been waiting for these! Lovely! looking forward to grimy, dusty chasseurs on campaign in the Peninsula, Russia etc.

Where's deadhead? He would love these chasseurs.

Btw… You don't need to have a Facebook account to see the pictures (clicking on the links).

I want… I need that Marbot. :-)

Marbot looks great and it seems without facial hair that is correct for 1812 based on his portrait. He started to grow a mustache at least for 1815 based on a portait as 7e Hussar Colonel and a much later one as a general.

Great miniatures as always!

"Where's deadhead? He would love these chasseurs."

Oh he sure did and posted them to New Products. I got too much grief for posting what I do admit belonged on the Gallery to the Discussion instead. Amazed we have not heard from Tango yet (grin)

You beat me and Tango to it, deadhead.

I apologize if I posted this to the wrong board.

I will now crawl back into my hole (carrying my chasseurs cheval and that Marbot figure). :-)

Only kidding! You did a far more comprehensive posting of the pictures. Facebook is mystery to me.

You knew I would love these. Massive conversion potential eg HA riders…….

Things on New Products, even on Gallery, do not get noticed as much as on Discussion……….and now these have prompted discussion! Folk might come up with many more possible transformations.

Teasing Tango is half the fun. I only beat him to it because of the time difference. When I posted this he was slumbering in his pit………..(grin)

I wish Perry would do Chasseurs in the long tailed coat.

Cuirassier Inactive Member31 Mar 2018 5:48 a.m. PST

They look good, very good indeed.





These are shown with the four additional 'carbine arms' to produce scouts/pickets if you want.

I somehow had the idea they would mostly come with the rolled cloak, which would have limited conversion potential. Delighted to see not the case.

Now how about Perrys creating a new code, with the current standing horses in metal? No extra work needed…..they already exist. Let's say four in a box, could be immediately used for hussars and now the chasseurs.

and yes, they are marvellous painted up. Thanks Cuirassier.
