Brigade Von Blucher - Jena Auerstadt, 1806

Regiment of the Day

Today we have a powerful unit of Prussian cavalry from the 1806 campaign.

As part of Blucher's Advanced Guard Division, 2 whole regiments of excellent Hussars brigaded together under the personal command of Blucher himself.

6 bases of hussar cavalry, drawn from 2 regiments.

Figures from AB. I have gone with the red hussars for this half of the brigade, using the figures with Mirletons.

3 bases of Prussian Hussars.

Had to go with the shakos for the 5th Hussars - being the famous black Totenkopf Hussars.

AB always do great figures, especially their cavalry. These ones are no exception.
