Does anyone know if mixed units of horse were ever fielded during ECW? I have 3 regiments of 12 Horse completed, and intend to do a 4th (2 each for king and Parliament) and then some dragoons.
I was wondering about getting a box of cuirassiers and splitting them up over my existing units, and reorganising them to make my 4th unit that way. I.e take 3 out of each unit, and add 3 cuirassiers to each unit to replace them, then band the figures I took out with the remaining cuirassiers to make my forth unit.
This would be purely for aesthetic reasons to break up the look a bit. Or would this be totally inaccurate from a historical perspective.
I am not keen to do a unit entirely of cuirassiers due to their scarcity in the ECW.
