Surely these will always sell. Conversions from current sculpts are possible with varying degrees of success, but the poses then remain the same as their line brothers. My guess is that a good number of people would want that point of difference for these iconic units. Certainly there is one vote for them here!

In my view the units should comprise:
Grenadiers a Cheval ("the Gods")
Chasseurs a Cheval ("the Immortals"), and a company of Mamelukes ("the Colourful?")
Empress Dragoons
Polish and Dutch Lancers
and the Eclair units of 1813/14

If I could dream for a moment, the Chasseurs would be without Pelisse (often absent 1805-9, withdrawn 1809), and would include a carbine holding pose for the Emperor's guard.

There, all done and over to you Leon. What's that? They are in the pipeline already? Great (not fake) news!

Hopefully there is interest - I'm not quite sure how this request thing works, but no doubt will find out.

I empathise.  Incomplete ranges are too frustrating for words.

These are the two cavalry types which have already been sculpted, but never production moulded:

Guard Chasseurs a Cheval:



Guard Grenadiers a Cheval:



I'll do my best to get them sorted out asap as we've had them for quite a while now.

Wow that is just fantastic!

My stupid joke about Leon agreeing to sculpt Guard cavalry appears to have an unexpected basis... now very tempting to make the same stupid joke for other units.

Many thanks Leon

Yes. 

Now I just need to find the magic words to make the Pelisses disappear from the Chasseurs a Cheval...

Poses are great - especially of the Grenadiers a Cheval.  They look perfect.

Those chasseurs might be morphed a bit to give more animation to SYW Hungarian hussars too.

I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

They really need to see the light of day (Chasseurs without Pelisse though)...

All this leads to one question Leon: what else is there tucked away in that vast vault of unreleased sculpts you appear to have???

Some Gargoyles...   :-

As well as some Guard infantry and artillery crews.

Although I don't know how these Guard Horse crews differ to the ones we've already got on the website, there's been some debate as to what's what over the years.  Originally the website ones were Horse crew, but then we got conflicting info that they were Guard Horse, which makes these sculpts below a bit redundant...

Guard Horse artillery crews:


Old Guard foot artillery crews:


Old Guard Grenadiers:

Leon, one person's redundancy is another's variety, so if it were up to me I would put them out. The sculpts look great, especially of the horse artillery, and conversion potential for early periods is there.

But Leon you have toyed with us long enough. Where are the Mamelukes?

Well thatís two sales.

Don't rush me Ben!

Not something we've got planned at this stage I'm afraid, that'd be one for the request lists.
