    Hello Planeteers,
    I just finished this vignette representing some of the corps of the French Cavalry as they would have appear between 1779-1789 before the outbreak of the French Revolution.
    On this scenette we have on officer of the Carabiniers de Monsieur, one of the most "Royalist" corps of the cavalry.
    Originaly created in 1691 by Louis XIV as the Corps of Royal Carabiniers, later on in the 1750's lost its title of Royal when it was Renamed Carabiniers. De Monsieur.
    Later on at the early stage of the French Revolution, whe all of the Royal Symbols were abolished, they survived somewhat with old regimental privileges, very often they engaged in individual duels to the extent of little battles when revolutionary authorities try to erase the Royal mottos from their sabres.
    The other figure is an Officer of the Royal house of Orleans carrying the Guidon of the Regiment.
    The unmounted figure is a trooper of the famous House of Condé.
    The corps of Dragoons were intended to fight both, on foot and mounted, and their uniform remaimed almost unchanged from 1760 up to well entered the 1900's.

    What am I going to do with you , I turn my back and it's finished !

    Having followed (along with many others from this forum ) each build along with information on the uniforms have to say it's cone out rather well. , love the interaction between the figures , that alongside the painting really brings this scene to life , I can only imagine what they are thinking as they look at each other !
