Units - Chassuers a Cheval

A recent seam of e-bay purchases yielded 20 Hinton Hunt Chasseurs a Cheval, in addition to Minifigs 20mm Polish (or possibly Dutch) Guard lancers, and Minifigs 20mm/Alberken Cuirassiers - these will be posted on the Old Metal Detector blog. The figures are FN 122 one piece castings. Often overlooked in favour of their flashier lancer or hussar brethren, the Chassuers were the workhorse of Napoleon's light cavalry.

Wow! Those castings look to be superb quality with a very nice paint job - I have some waiting in the lead pile. Great stuff.
