Sweeping through the flank of your enemy, the new Napoleonic Polish Line Light Horse Lancers charge down your opponents.
The Poles have been excellent horsemen for generations and in their innumerable clashes with Russia had learned to fight the lance-armed Cossacks, equipping themselves with a 9-foot wooden lance with a wicked spear point and coloured guidon beneath the blade.
- 12 plastic easy-build Polish Line Light Horse Lancers.
- Additional Polish metal heads.
- 1 additional metal officer and metal horse.
- 1 optional metal arm for a bugler.
Lancers were technically light cavalry but considered themselves the equal of better-mounted troops by dint of the dispiriting lance which would outreach enemy Sabres and enable them to dispatch infantry who ran or feigned death.
These fine models in their fabulous uniforms could be fielded in a single brigade or of course placed in regular light horse brigades for added colour.
Polish Line Light Horse Lancers brigade
The Vistula Lancers were formed in 1808 as the 1st Lancers in French service. This inspired more units to be raised and the Vistula became the 7th Lancers, two more ‘Polish’ units were then added as the 8th and 9th, though the 9th was composed of French and German troops.
With enough models for a cavalry brigade, lead the charge to the downfall of Napoleons’ enemies.
