  • Right. Sorry. My mind was wandering.

    The Chasseurs de Chevale de Le Garde Imperial.


    I'm also particular to the British Heavy Dragoons kit

    • That's much better, thank you.

      Is that a Rose Miniature?

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.

      • Perhaps, not sure. I used to collect and paint figures when I was a kid, and my first was an Inniskilling Dragoon which I did up as the Dragoon who took an Eagle at Waterloo. The one I did after that was a Chasseur de Cheval of the Imperial Guard; it was a French company that produced top quality plastic figurines and equipment. I can't recall the name of the company, but I think that they've gone belly-up.

          A very nice miniature. Thanks for sharing it with us.

          • Historex!! It took my heck of a time figuring out what the name of the company was, but for years they turned out some wonderful plastic models of Napoleonic soldiery. Quite a few of them are still around, on ebay and elsewhere. Maybe I should get back into that...

                • They're beautiful kits when done upright. I've forgotten about them for so, so long. I'm definitely going to put some together.

                  Mind you, I'll have to pay golden guineas for the 95th Rifles kit.... UBER rare.
