Cavalry For The Garibaldi Campaign.


Neither Garibaldi or his Neapolitan foes had much cavalry at the start of the Sicilian campaign , the only unit the Neapolitans had was the Horse Chasseur Regt. , which is portrayed above . 


Garibaldi had even fewer cavalry , in fact at the start of the campaign the Guides were not even mounted !. I have decided to give them horses - both units will count as 'small' under the 'Black Powder' rules. The figures are of course from Irregular.

    1. I was looking for a 'different' period to play the Blackpowder rules with and then read Herbert's book on Garibaldi and the Irregular figures are nice .
