2nd Empire Chasseurs a Cheval - Eagles of Empire

These are Eagles of Empire French Hussars painted up as Chasseurs a Cheval.
Another set of nicely sculpted and finely detailed 2nd Empire figures.
Again, I'm very impressed with the research that went into the details of these figures. For instance, the fascine on the saddles are a nice historical touch.
They are all in more charging poses than the North Star Prussian Hussars, but still match up with them nicely.
This set comes with extra sword arms in different poses.
Again, only 6 figures as they'll be used in small skirmish games.
All of the units for a play test are ready; which should be soon as I plan to host this at next month's Fix Bayonet game day at Fort Steilacoom.

Wishing you all the best, and happy gaming and painting!

    1. Ah, you're too kind. Actually, the uniform is quite simple, but elegant. Not to mention the combination of green and red. Warmest regards, Dean

  3. I wasn't aware of that EOE had 2nd Empire French hussars: nicely done, indeed! Looking at their website, it appears that there is a figure in kepi (an officer): was that part of the set?

    1. Thanks, Ed. I have that kepi wearing officer; it's a separate command figure. Soren added in the order as a freebie. I'll paint him up next. Kind regards, Dean
