There will be a 2nd or 3rd regiment to add to these, though rarely brigaded together I understand.

Art Miniaturen have produced some excellent poses with "chapeau rouleau". So appropriate for the later stages (1812-1815). It would appear that the 6th and 8th hussars were some of the early units to wear this new head gear so these chaps are painted as the 8th. No pompoms yet.....any ideas on what a 16 man regiment should depict? (4 in red, 4 in light blue, 4 in yellow/orange and 4 in violet?) Or according to another source is it red, green, blue and orange?)
All my other light cavalry units should be the same....work to do.
This regiment will accompany the 1st, 2nd and 10th Hussars already painted.
Next up will be two battalions of Italian Guard in green with two skirmish bases in green also but with the shako and am pondering whether to do some Neopolitan line infantry as well. Though doubtful how involved they were in Germany in 1813.
