So, here's another one for the first world war. How about dismounted troopers? For many scenarios those would be fairly important.
Here are some pics to qicken the appetite  Cool

Austrian hussars storming a russian position:


Battle of Haelen 1914; dismounted belgian troopers fend off several fierce attacks by german Uhlans:



and now for the best part: it would be fairly easy for pendraken to do these poses since you already got those:

Some headswaps, boots and minor details on the uniform..and there you go, a new ww1 cavalry troopers is born  Cheesy

Are you Austrian? I note that you give them a capital letter, whereas three other European nations don't qualify.

No, I'm german and I only wrote austrian with a capital A here, because it stood at the beginning of the sentence.  Wink

It's fascinating, however. Like the way that the later Ming Chinese responded to the usual threat on their northern frontiers by orering that the word for "barbarian" should always be written as small as possible in official documents to show contempt.

Even though German uses capitals so lavishly?

Capitals aside, some more dismounted cavalry is a good idea. There are the Brits (BP41) but some more would be useful. Horse-holding types could be included as well.

Indeed it does, but it's not always correct. I handed in a paper once, in which I (unintentionally) wrote 'bavarian' (adjective) with a capital B each time..the professor (not a native bavarian) wasn't too pleased.  No talking

I think that the union horse-holders would also be a good sarting point here.

Who would have thought that a request for dismounted cavalry would lead to a discussion of the capitals of Europe! Dismounted Russian cavalry are easy - use an infantryman. However dismounted Austrian hussars and dragoons would definitely look quite arresting on the tabletop.

If you use dismounted cavalry you would also probably need horse-holders.
