25mm Nap. French - Cuirassiers

After the forge, I figured I would get back to showcasing a standard unit. This time I went with that gold standard of Napoleonic heavy cavalry; the French Cuirassiers! The cuirassiers are the heavy cavalry of the French army. The largest horses, ridden by the largest men, all clad in steel breastplates... the Cuirassiers were a terror on the battlefield, especially to vulnerable infantry!

This is a unit of twelve men, divided into 2 sections. There is a command section and a standard section. They are in blue, with the musician in the traditional green. Cuffs and collars are yellow, and the breastplates are a shiny metal!:)

The figures are 25mm Old Glory.
