Expeditionary Force Napoleonic Polish Lancers - 54 FRN 12 - 54mm Plastic
What the maker say:
"The set contains 5 model soldiers and 5 horse models comprising of 1 officer and 4 troopers. The heads and arms are interchangeable giving permutation of at least 10 different assembled postures.
Polish Lancers appear in many armies and wear basically the same uniforms except in different colours. In the French army, they appear in Blue (Polish) and Red (Dutch).
The model troopers can be assembled into two tactical scenarios: attacking or advancing. The use of the lance requires specialised training. In pursuit and when attacking infantry in square formation, the lancer is deadly.
This side view shows the style of their saddle cloth with the imperial eagle emblem. These are thus part of the Imperial Guard although Polish Lancers are also found serving in Line regiments and foreign auxiliary units. We believe that trimming off unwanted details is always easier than adding details to models.
The Lancer officer is not issued with the lance and has his aiguillette on the right shoulder. (Troopers have theirs on the left).
There is a glued-on dropping horse-hair plume on his shako. This is non-regulation in the French army. (They are embellished with plume and cords for parade.) This item is added at the request of a regular customer and since we have space in the mold for such a small item, we just added it in.
His shabraque (saddle cloth) is that of the leopardskin, popular among light cavalry officers of the period.
The lance however is at a disadvantage in a melee and thus, lancer units always have a rear rank of troopers armed with the sabre and the carbine. The arm options to assemble such troopers are included in the box-set."
