Just a request for Piedmontese light cavalry with lances please. Since they made up about half of the Piedmont light cavalry regiments they're pretty important.

I simply used the heavy ones and filed down the helmets into Kepis. In 6mm I think it works ok. Which regiments do you think were lance armed?

Ah, of course you're doing 1866 I presume, lots more "Piedmontese" regiments. I tend to think more of 1859 and really need to work my way through the book I bought from (I think) Caliver a while ago 'L'Esercito Piemontese'. It was quite expensive and it was only after it arrived that I discovered it only covered the Cavalry. It's roughly Osprey format/style though a few more pages, which include illustration captions in English. As I've only just started yr 2 of my U3A Italian course the text reading goes slowly but I'll get there.

Basically I'm building a generic army that will do 1859 -1866. I've got the two L'Esercito books from Caliver, the infantry one unfortunately is all in Italian, even the notes on the colour plates which makes things a bit difficult. Osprey's book(s) on the uniforms isn't due out until 2017, Autumn possibly so it's a case of doing a lot of detective work. I used Bitter Victory as the source for the units above. Its all in English (hooray) and is an excellent reference with OOB, equipment and uniform guides and plenty of colour plates.
