I finally got myself back in gear and I'm finishing up my Lace Wars project. First step is some more cavalry link

Those look very nice. I like your horse colours- very natural looking.

Very very nicely painted.

Just a remark, unlike for cavalry regiments in the Corps des Carabiniers rifled muskets were carried as dragoons rifles, stock down in a leather case.
And during the Polish succession war, in 1734 they were equipped with a bayonet. Last detail, as they do horse and foot services, they wore boots as Mousquetaires with low shoe upper part (chaussures ą tiges basses).

Monsieur de Chevert,
Please forgive, I was working from the (rather sketchy) information in the Osprey Louis XIV book; was holster for the musket a shallow "boot" style or a deeper version? I would greatly appreciate a picture reference if you could provide one so that I can correct the models.
Also I am looking at a much earlier period 1690-1714, does impact the boots and holster arrangement?

Have no doubt, it was a gentler feedback. (sources history of Royal Carabiniers – Encyclopedie – Art militaire – 1784 and M. de La Porterie – Institutions militaires … – 1754)
It was probably a shallow boot as for dragoons.

Many Thanks, I will get to work rectifying that matter
