Having just finished painting the Red Box Jacobite cavalry as the French SYW Orleans regiment, I thought I'd parade the combined cavalry

8 regiments worth and a colourful lot they look:

The light cavalry (Schomberg's Volunteerrs & a combined Hussar unit):

A Heavy cavalry brigade comprised of the Lusignan & Wurtemberg regiments:

The new Orleans regiment, brigaded with the Maestre de Camp General regiment:

And finally, the Dragoon brigade, led by a new French general, converted from a figure in the Red Box set:

As many of you know, French SYW cavalry in this scale (1/72) are not to be had all but one of the above units are conversions. This means quite a few incorrect details to do with uniform & horse furniture.

So, whilst not entirely satisfied with them, they mostly look the part IMO.

Nice work! When it comes to colourful cavalry in the SYW hard to beat the French
