|11th Calvary Division|
At Waterloo, they were part of Ney's unsupported massed cavalry charges in the afternoon.
The 11th Division was made up of -
2nd Dragoon Regiment
7th Dragoon Regiment
2nd Brigade of General de Brigade Guiton
8th Cuirassier Regiment
11th Cuirassier Regiment
It also had the 3rd Battery of the 2nd Horse Artillery under Captain Marcillac.
I used Bend Sinister's excellent Redline figures for the Dragoons and Cuirassiers. Really easy to paint and good proportions. They are in a full gallop with swords pointed forwards. The Redline Captains always have their swords high in the air for easy recognition. 96 figures representing approximately 1920 men.
I look forward to painting more Cuirassiers and I make up the other 9 Regiments present at Waterloo. Maybe later next year.
