Well, not quite, as they are still Thirty Years' War, but different in that they are Easterners, skirmishers, do not speak German as a first language and dress funny.
I wanted some of these iconic light cavalry, but do not have a good feel for using such types in any period (do not get me started on the Numidians in my 15mm Carthaginian army!). However, the Imperialists had them and so do I! I usually race them up the table to draw out enemy horse, shoot a few figures with their carbines/ musketoons/ arquebusses, and then chase off somewhere else to do the same again, assuming there are enough of them left. They are nuisance rather than menace, gnat rather than dirty great wasp. As I have said before, I am a Kurassier/ Cuirassier at heart.
One day they WILL be glorious. I will post their glory for all to see when that day comes!!!
Again, these are Old Glory figures.
|Slightly closer and less glare from my usual gloss varnish on the flag is another bonus.|
