Piedmontese Lancers .


My next order from Irregular arrive at the weekend comprising of 2 squadrons of Lancers and a gun, crew and limber/team . Spurred on I painted up the first of the Lancer units .


They are the Lancieri Di Novara , I've decided to go a bit more cavalry heavy with the Piedmontese force and as I haven't got any lancers in my Unification of Italy project they were an obvious choice . Just to make things a bit more interesting they had their shako covered with a 'yellow' waterproof cover . Irregular figures are not the most detailed but they do paint up quickly and at 'wargaming table distance' (about 3' ish) they look as good as any other manufacturer .

  4. Splendid looking fellows. Like the cap covers, gives them a business like look.

  5. Very tasty. I've been casting covetous eyes at the Sardinians in the Crimea.

    Those chaps would put a fellow to wondering.
