I love Napoleonic cavalry, and the French cavalry have some of the best togs. A dashing Hussar, in 'full fig', as Harry Flashman might have it, is a fine sight. The Chasseurs of the Line were generally a bit more dowdy than their Hungarian-influenced Hussar brethren. But no one appears to have told the officer depicted in Gericault's painting that!
These rather more modest lads are part of a single squadron from the 28th Chasseurs à Cheval, belonging to Ney's III Corps, which I'm building up for a re-fight of the battle of Smolensk, in 6mm. As usual, I'm posting images of them not 100% finished, because, until I resolve basing questions, practically all my miniatures will remain in a state of limbo. But they're near enough finished... so never mind, here they are!
