Well Chasseurs D'Afrique actually !, this is the final unit of my Old School Franco-Prussian project and it has taken about 18 months to get it done . It's not often I pre- plan my armies they usually just grow (like Topsy) , so I'm rather pleased to have been able to keep on target with it .
I'm not sure if they should have grey horses ? - they did in the Crimea , but what little pictorial evidence I can find seem to show various shades of brown during the Franco-Prussian War - I decided to give the officers grey ones in the end.
Foundry do dismounted cavalry figures - but they are a lot chunkier that the Spencer Smith figures , but being in separate units and not mixed they may have to do as I would like to have the option to dismount the cavalry units .
