Great work – one of my favourite Napoleonic cavalry units

I'll second that. No one does them in 28mm to this standard. Full dress rig, parade poses….not another unit to compare for splendour.

Dumb question. Why cap lines on some and not others. Is it a Young Guard thing?

Oh and also. How clever the harness and reins. Two colours…bit of research gone into these.

For me these are "if only" subjects

The trumpeter's white bearskin looks sensational. Was there any artistic licence in choosing it?

I suspect so. Looks great though.

My French units all carry eagles. Indeed my single company of Gendarmes d'Elite has three!

I have parade figures waving their sabres with great enthusiasm.

I have trumpeters of many nations on greys (actually I have stopped doing that now)

There is an art to artistic licence, by definition.

Or could there be a science to the field of choice, and an art to its selection?
