Very nice – he should lose that goofy hat, though, especially when he has that neat helmet!

It's a kausia; an off-duty soldiers hat. I like that. Worn by Macedonians and… Afghans (possibly a survival from Alexander's day). There is a chap in Muswell Hill who wears one, too. I don't know which he is. ;-)

I love the cloth cap. He must have risen from the proletarian ranks and didn't forget his roots :-)

Cheers,
John

What I like about this officer is that you can give him a helmeted head swap and he becomes the helmet bearer for a command stand in the case that the mounted commander is not wearing a helmet.

Thanks for the post here.

So nice to see miniature companies adding the option of the ubiquitous Kausia cap to their Macedonian Successors.
This has been a long time coming.

In my youth the brilliant National Geographic illustrations showed Macedonians wearing the Petasos broad brimmed hat of the Greeks. Then miniature companies copied that and called it a Kausia. But the Kausia may have come from Alexander's era and their use have been originated in the Hindu Kush by his soldiers. The Successor kings gave out purple ones as rewards.

Archaeology and great illustrations from Angus McBride to Peter Dennis have given us a better view. Now we are getting these great sculpts.

Some even believe that the Kausia is the Pakol, the cap worn by Pashtuns, and our own soldiers, in our wars in Afghanistan.
