I've painted the carabiniers o cheval in their pre-1809 uniform :


I hope you'll like them…

Marvelous job! Personally, I wish they'd kept this uniform with the addition of a cuirass and chinscales to the bearskin (in order to comply with the Emperor's orders), rather than adopt that fancy-pants white coat rig.

Very well done!

"Haut la tête, messieurs, la mitraille ce n'est pas de la merde !"

Superb word- one of my favourite French cavalry units and I echo Eumelus' thoughts

Was that not a quote from Colonel Lepic of the the Grenadiers a Cheval of the Guard at Eylau?
