Les Chevaliere de Rohan-Soubise - Yet another cavalry regiment, Rohan-Soubise represents the newest of the heavy cavalry regiments. Formed this last Winter, it, along with FitzAndrew's Horse, form the first heavy cavalry brigade. Rohan-Soubise, along with Les Chevaliere d'Isembourg, are true line cavalry regiments, and not to be confused with dragoons (His Majesty is waiting patiently for a really nice miniature in the fatigue bonnet that will sit well on a Stadden horse). More later on Rohan-Soubise as they cover themselves with glory......, and bandages no doubt. Oh by the way, the bugler is a conversion of the Stadden cavalry trooper, and not available commercially. Coming soon; the Vivandiere!

Very nice, large unit! (I like the LOTR tie-in, too)

Interesting you mentioned that. I hadn't thought of it at the time, but there is a solid similarity with LOTR. I have no idea why those names, but they do seem to have flair.

Tough-looking professionals - or at least so they appear. And an excellent name indeed - you have a gift for such.
Looking forward to read about their achievements (and to see the vivandieres, of course!).
