This dozen horsemen are Saxons from Eureka Miniatures' 1806 Saxon range pressed into service as early French heavy cavalry. The sculpting is first rate and the facial detailing is especially pleasing. As always with Eureka Miniatures, the horses are little gems. Bigger than most but top notch modeling. Eureka definitely make my favorite horses.
These four squadrons muster out as the 2nd Cavalry. Enough figures remain in The Lead Pile to field another such four-squadron regiment.
Fielding a 1799 game was a goal for 2016 and that objective is growing near. The cavalry arm in the project is seeing good progress in 2016. Getting close to picking a battle to refight and put the finishing touches on an OB and painting schedule.
Next up will be an Austrian regiment of hussars for the project. Any guess as to which hussar regiment goes under the brush first?
