So thinking about potential French forces to fight against my 95th Rifles. Rather than go out and buy something, I decided to use one of the free sprues from Wargames Illustrated. I had the French Chasseurs a Cheval sprue.
Formed originally back in 1743, the Chasseurs à 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.
Here are the painted versions from the Warlord Games website, which I will as a painting guide.
