“Champagne! In victory one deserves it, in defeat one needs it” - Napoleon

The figures used are Italeri French Carabiniers mounted on their 1806 Prussian Cavalry horses. Luckily I had just enough figures to make a command stand as well.
I will be adding a commander, when I move onto rebasing the generals.

Quite large structures, quite suitable for the major Government buildings, but quite plain on the backs.
By coat colour they are the Banal (blue), Karlstädter-Ottochaner (red), Slavonisch-Peterwardeiner (brown), Warasdiner-Creutzer (white)
Must admit that my favourite figure is that of Cardinal Richelieu.
The Celtic cross is a scenic item picked up from Sgts Mess at Bovington
back right is the one "special" figure in the pack a 007 look-alike
Perhaps they look better in monochrome?
This time there are a German regiment Hoch und Deutchmeister (blue), an Italian Los Rios (Green) and two Hungarian Esterhazy (red) and Paffly (light blue)
The first regiment is in the original white jacket, which changed to blue sometime in 1812. The figures are ACTA mounted on Italeri horses. The slight error is that they should have a helmet crest rather than horsehair.
Both units have orange facings
