Loncheney Hussars - Recruited from some of the more questionable regions of the vast Austrian empire, the Loncheney Hussars are the first light cavalry regiment of l'Armie de St. Maurice. Here, we see the boys parading in royal review, with their colonel Tepps taking the salute of His Majesty. Holding with the tradition of the cavalry, the hussars have yet to win so much as a fist fight. They do look good however, and in St. Maurice that certainly must count for something.

nice, great name!

Indeed they do look quite good . . . and while they may not have won any fistfights, they've undoubtedly won the hearts of some young women.

Indeed, m'lord bluebear, what would otherwise be the point of joining the hussars? Thanks guys.

Hi Mike

They're a great looking unit! Much like A.C. Doyle's character the Brigidier Gerard said of his regiment the Hussars of Conflans, "They could set a whole population running. The men from them. The women towards them!"

Great minis- is the officer a conversion? He stands well out, as is fitting.

Jean-Louis - As I recall, the officer is Stadden's mounted horse artillery officer. The troops are actually the mounted gunner figure. I really liked the "unarmed" look of them.
Thank you again gentlemen.
