During the last local convention the bring and buy had me rooting around packages like a starving weasel. Luckily a fellow wargamer I know was just labelling his sale bags when I interrupted to examine the figures. For a very good low price I now had 12 Prussian Connoisseur riders on Front Rank horses. For our rules ratios, that is well more the entire Prussian cuirassier contingent for 1813-15 !
Oh sure they are but in one pose and the horses many in the same pose also, but the similarities make them easier to paint and look quite imposing all with a straight backs and swords at the ready!
However I still can use them for the 1813 and 1814 campaigns where they show up in the large battles once and a while.
