I'm always far more worried than bothered.

If I don't have something to worry about, I always think "What have I forgotten to worry about ?"  X_X

(Oh....You mean I bother everyone.) :-\

Thanks for the pointer. That might work nicely for me.

Seems to me this needs to be pushed as FK derailed an important request immediately it was posted. My preferred area of ops for WWI is Europe 1914 where many scenarios would require dismounted cavalry. Dismounted horseholders look good, but a mounted base left on table would suffice. Great to see that Britain,Germany and France have been tackled, Russian infantry without backpacks make an excellent proxy, but Austria and Belgium definitely need something. For Belgium a dismounted figure wearing an Isabelina cap would look great, and could be painted up as any type of Belgian cavalry. Dismounted German Uhlans would make a good temporary fix for both Austrian and Belgian cavalry, although the Belgian uhlans discarded their schapkas in August 1914 as it made them look too much like Germans.

You're certainly right!
The US dismounted cavalry from the ACW range in shell jackets would be a good start for many nationalities though the longer style tunics would be needed as well. Boots would be a requirement as well as different headgear. That would still amount to quite a few new figures especially when you include dismounted horseholders (although I use mounted figures for horseholders). oh... and let's not forget dismounted command while we're at it.
Still; a very good suggestion!
