CUIRASSIERS

Image credit is Historex NCO Color Card 686 - 687

Napoleon ordered all heavy cavalry regiments to adopt the cuirass, a two-piece front and back steel shell that covered the torso.  The two figures on the left above represent the Revolutionary War heavy cavalry with one regiment, the 8th, wearing the cuirass.  Carabiniers and Cuirassiers were Napoleon's battlefield heavy cavalry.  Note that the trumpeters are available painted in two versions: up to 1812, the jacket is in the reverse of the regiment's facing color.  After that date, the jacket was green with Imperial livery.

DRAGOONS CHEVAL

Image credit is Historex NCO Color Card 664 - 704

Napoleon's dragoons were considered "medium" battlefield cavalry and were trained to dismount and fight on foot if necessary although this was little done during the Napoleonic Wars.  They were mounted on large horses much like that of the heavy cavalry but the troopers were not armored.  They carried a short cavalry version of the musket (not a carbine).  They wear the long-tailed coat or "habit".  This changed to a short-tailed habit in 1812 .  As a form of mounted infantry, the dragoon regiments included mounted sappers.  For a brief time, in 1805-06, Napoleon dismounted several Dragoon regiments to fight on foot and they are a separate set of figures and appear in the next panel below.

CONVERSION KITS - Kit HX3103 is an "economy" kit .  Kit HX3103 will make one mounted Dragoon of the center company -  an Officer, Standard Bearer, Trumpeter, or Trooper - in full dress uniform for the period 1804-1815.  They are listed separately as HX3103 below but are all the same kit.

There are three other series of mounted dragoons.  Prefix 6641xx, have parts to build a dragoon from 1804-1808 and the soldiers are listed separately.  Series 6642xx covers the period 1809-1812.  The difference between the two series is provision for vertical or horizontal pockets in the second group.  Both provide headdress for the elite company (bearskin) only.  Lastly, prefix 7042xx provides for the mounted sappers.

DRAGOONS PIED

Image credit is Historex NCO Color Card 665 - 704

Napoleon had plans to invade England in 1804 or 1805 but these plans were thwarted by the English fleet.  Instead, he turned his attention towards the European-based powers of the Third Coalition: principally Austria and Russia.  To protect his "flank" from possible English invasion, Napoleon built-up an anti-invasion force but ran short of veteran troops.  To help make up the difference, he dismounted several dragoon regiments to fight on foot.  Their main characteristic was the wearing of gaiters, changing from trumpeters to drummers, and retention of the sappers.

CHASSEURS CHEVAL

Image credit is Historex NCO Color Card 681 - 682

Napoleon's chasseurs a cheval  along with the lancers and hussars of the line were considered "light" battlefield cavalry and were primarily assigned to corps d'arme for reconnaissance and protection of the flanks.  They were mounted on small horses for speed and maneuverability.  They carried the short carbine (mousqueton).  They wear the long-tailed coat or "habit".  This changed to a short-tailed habit in 1812 .  There were thirty regiments of Chasseurs a cheval at one time or another but the 17e and 18e Rgiments were disbanded in 1794 and never raised again in Napoleon's time.

HUSSARDS

Image credit is Historex NCO Color Card 632 - 633 - 698

Hussar regiments have existed since the late 16th Century.  In the Napoleonic Wars, Hussars were elaborately-dressed light cavalry.  Napoleon maintained 14 Hussar regiments by the end of 1814.  In the summer campaign months, Hussars wore only their dolman, the short waist-length jacket.  In winter campaigns, the pelisse was worn.  For parade, the pelisse was worn slung over the left shoulder of the dolman.  Each regiment had a separate color scheme and, if the uniforms were similar, were distinguished by different button/lace colors of white (silver for officers) or yellow (gold for officers).  Trumpeters wore reversed colors and rode gray horses.

CHEVAU-L�GERS LANCIERS

Image credit is Historex NCO Color Card 712 - 713 - 714

Light-Horse Lancers introduced into the French Army by Napoleon in 1811 to provide a counter to the growing  strength of the lancer arm in other European countries.  Six dragoon regiments of the line were converted to lancers forming the 1st thru 6th Regiments (above left).  Two Vistula Legion (polish) lancers regiments were incorporated into army at the same time from the Polish Vistula Legion (above right).  The last lancer regiment, the 9th, was formed from another foreign element, the Legion of Hanover, and filled out with men from the 31st Chasseurs a cheval.
