Age of Eagles (AoE) - 1810 Battle of Bussaco in 20mm (part 8) - Lamotte's cavalry Brigade
This post concludes Ney's 2nd Corps, and regards the Hussar and Chevaux Légeres of Lamotte´s cavalry Brigade.
The figures are from the Esci British Hussar set and have Shakos from Esci French Line Infantry, minus the elite company which kept the original Colpack.
The 15e Chasseurs à Cheval are the Revell life Guards with French Esci Shakos. The Elite company have Colpacks from the Hat Voltigeurs.
As I told you about other Chasseurs à Cheval units in this plastic army the Revell figures are a good platform for conversions as the figures don't have too much detail and you can paint different units. Besides the Shako the only addition is a GreenStuff bedroll on the back of the saddle.
Next: Wether the 1940 Dragons Portés from Les Armées Oubliés or Soult 8th Corps for Bussaco.
