    Hello all,

    for my project I'm seeking the the Le Cimier Mounted 90mm Cuirassier Officer and Almond 90mm Mounted Cuirassier Ensign.

    If anyone has one or both of these and wishes to sell them please let me know.

    Cheers

    I think this is what you are looking for. This is part of a vignette. There is another Cuirassier Officer whistling at the mounted officer to come over.

    Hi Tommy-I seem to remember the officer is standing?

    The Le Cimier kit, will, I suspect, be harder to find than the Almond. I have the Almond but still not sure if I want to part with it.

    Hi all,

    thanks for your responses.

    The mounted ensign which Tommy has kindly added pictures of is the one I'm seeking. The whistling cuirassier I've acquired already.

    Attached is a picture of the Le Cimier figure which I would love to get my hands on.

    Huw good luck with your search, hope that you find them all a the right price, however watch out for big differences in the scale of each of the figures if you are planning to group them together.

    My Plan wasn't to group them but any advice is always appreciated and worth bearing in mind.

    Cheers

    Huw

    I've been on the lookout for a while now too!

    Cheers

    A pity I have to let it go without bidding...
    Good luck guys. Truly an exceptional piece!

    Judging by the opening eBay prices, these are clearly popular and in demand kits but the equine anatomy on that Le Cimier horse is just weird. Look at the head & neck! Still, each to their own and all that.

    Hi!
    The top area of the neck is somewhat exaggerated, but I always loved that figure. A bit weird? Maybe, but amazing to me.
    I wish I could buy it... but I also want to respect Huw request.
    Cheers,

    Hi

    I bidded for both. The Le Cimier Officer price has become ridiculous (£270.00 which is above the limit which I've set) so I'm pulling out of the game. As for the Cuirassier Ensign I've set my maximum so any increase and i shan't bid further either.

    Cheers

    Dear Huw,
    I somehow regret Ratty has been so successful listing them in ebay. Happy for him knowing the prices are rising sooo much, but I wish he had sold it directly to you. Lucky guy
    It's one of this pieces from the past I also have in my mind, but hard to find.
    With respect to mounted Almond figures, I have a pair of them, I could offer you.
    I hope another Le Cimier cuirassier pops up again... or the masters are back in production.
    Cheers,

    Iñaki
