What do people use for Napoleonic Saxon cavalry?

Guard du Corps - Austrian Dragoons

Kuirassiers - Austrian Kuirassiers

Cheveaulegers - Austrian Cheveaulegers

Hussars - French/Austrian Hussars

???

Any pointers appreciated.

Hello Trev!

I assume your talking about 1810 Saxons, if so I would pick the following:

Guard du Corps & Kuirassiers - Russian Cuirassiers 1803-1808 only because they have a fuller helmet that seems to be a slightly better match. This also means you only need to buy one pack of figures unless your building big units.

In 1810 the Saxons adopted uniforms that were more French like then Austrian.

Cheveaulegers - French Chassuers, the plume is a little short but I don't think Baccus makes a plain cavalry figure in shako with a tall plume. I would also use this figure for any Dragoons. Some people simply add some putty to these figures to build up the plumes. I don't bother with that small of a detail as nobody ever notices.

Hussars - French Hussars as the shako is a closer match.

Hope this helps you in some way.

Best regards,

Glenn
