Grand Army Third Corps Cavalry
Here we see the Cavalry Corp Commander General Wollwarth and Third Corps Commander Marshal Ney leading the cavalry as they head into Russia in 1812. This unit included the French 11th Hussars, 4th & 8th Chasseurs a Cheval and 6th Chevau-Legers-Lancers. Most of the rest of the corps cavalry was from Wurttemberg-3rd & 4th Mounted Jagers, 1st Chevaulegers and the Lieb-Chevaulegers. In support are two infantry units, the 24th Light Infantry Regiment, the 1st Wurttemberg Jagers and Horse Artillery.
These are 15mm figures, mostly from the old Heritage line that I painted in 1978.
