  • Napoleonic French Chasseurs a Cheval Information

    Formed originally back in 1743, the Chasseurs a Cheval (mounted hunters) were hard riding, green-clad light cavalry whose main role was patrolling and raiding for the French armies. A good Chasseur was at home on his light horse, skirmishing with the enemy cavalry or scouting enemy movements and thus providing valuable intelligence for their commanders.

    Armed with a carbine, curved saber, and bayonet (an item disliked by the cavalrymen who used it to dig up vegetables or "lost" it on campaign) the Chasseurs were most happy in the saddle, although they were also trained to fight on foot should the need arise.

    At the height of the French Army under Bonaparte's reign, there were 31 regiments of Chasseurs a Cheval although only 15 regiments were available for the titanic Hundred Days campaign that culminated at the Battle of Waterloo. Our superbly detailed Chasseurs a Cheval are provided with covered and uncovered shakos as well as the colpacks favored by the elite companies.

    Although requested not to wear the sabretache beyond 1808 many Chasseurs would keep this item well beyond this decree and thus we've included it on our models. For those of you wishing to follow regulations over reality simply snip the sabretache off.

    This pack includes:

    • 12x Plastic Easy-build French Light Cavalry
    • 1x Metal Officer and Horse
    • Optional metal parts to make a trumpeter and eagle bearer
    • Includes options for shako, oilskin-covered shakos, and the elite company Colpack fur hat.

    Please Note: Models are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be required.
