French Mounted Hussars - Makes 5 Mounted figures
Item Number: 54FRN11
Period: Napoleonic Wars
This set also contains 5 cavalry models plus 5 horse models with arms options for various action poses. Contents(1) the headdress, (2) carbine, (3) sabre and sabretache and (4) shabraque (saddle cloth).
Hussar uniforms are based on the dress of the Hungarian irregular light horse and thus are substantially the same for all armies that raise such regiments.
In 1812, many French hussars adopted the shako rouleau, a cylindrical-shaped shako often covered in red cloth. This headdress provides a useful distinction from British Hussars.
Of course, the hussars can be converted into French Imperial Guard Chasseurs-a-cheval by simply providing all the troopers with the fur colpack.
