Warlord Games have put together a new plastic and metal combination set that will allow you field a new unit of French Chasseurs à Cheval in your Napoleonic games of Black Powder.

Charge!

The Napoleonic French Chasseurs à Cheval were formed in 1743 and were a tough force of cavalry used for raiding and scouting.They rode on light horses and were perfect for skirmish-style engagements providing a vital way to get intelligence back to commanding officers.

While able to fight on foot they preferred to ride as much as possible and were armed with a carbine, curved sabre and a bayonet. The last of these weapons they detested and used it to dig up vegetables when raiding rather than in combat.

Inside the box you get twelve of these riders that are made up of six parts each with the metal components fitting in easily with the existing plastic.

A great kit!
