minifig 15’s French cav :2nd

More Minifigs cavalry

 Whats a French army without some Mamelukes to hang around the big cheese when he’s on the table. There must be more descriptions of the Mameluke costume (I hesitate to call it a uniform) than there were actual Mamelukes, I finally settled on this one from Knotel via Elting.

Come to think of it these are based for Age of Eagles and therefore be triple the number of actual Mamelukes, still at brigade level manoeuvre units most regiments would only be 1 or 2 bases ;-). This is not the full contingent I’ll take some photo’s of the complete unit next time.

These have been in the collection for a fair time too, I’m using Shako nowadays for larger battles and I can’t be arsed rebasing them, Most about everything else is based around an Empire (groan) system other than my Prussians and these few units.

These chaps had a pretty good level of detail re folds and cuts and it seemed a waste not to take advantage of it so a bit of extra dry brushing seemed in order.

Once again I quite like the figure and would recommend it if your budget was tight or you were going to build big scale units, I better go and get those catalogue numbers……
