Évaluation

  • Horse et rider are anatomically correct.
  • The red uniform avec black facings looks smart, et the elegant bicorne hat goes very well avec it. The KGL dragoon wears his bicorne pointing fore et aft, unlike the officier of the 5th Dragoon Guards who wears the bicorne sideways.
  • Les chevaux hanovriens are decendents du destrier médiéval. They have been bred at the state stud farm in Celle near Hanover since 1735. L'hauteur du Hanovrien de 160 au 175 cm makes it an excellent heavy cavalry mount. This horse is noticeably taller than the officer's horse of the 5th Dragoon Guards also available from del Prado.
  • The 16-page booklet by Osprey Publishing contains several colourful illustrations of KGL cavalry des Guerres Napoléoniennes.
  • Compatible avec figurines militaires et civiles de chez King & Country en 1/30.
  • The saddle has not been modelled, it is only painted on the saddleblanket.
