British light cavalry had a reputation of ‘galloping at anything’ and whilst not entirely fair, they certainly were not shy in taking on enemy light cavalry and indeed even the huge armoured heavy French cavalry, as the men were confident in themselves and their horses being as large as the heavy French steeds. The light cavalry were gloriously attired. This boxed set enables you to build brigades of light cavalry with the two types of hussars and the more sombre light dragoons who thought themselves the equal of the foppish hussars. They are accompanied by the ever-reliable Royal Horse Artillery 9-pounder guns. Tally ho!
This plastic set provides enough models to field a complete brigade of three British light cavalry regiments (3 bases of Hussars in shako, 3 bases of Hussars in busby and 5 bases of Light Dragoons) and a 3-gun battery of Royal Horse Artillery 9-pdrs.
