Saxe-Ducal Hussars 1809-12

Another rebase and touch up unit. First painted around 1995 for a Napoleonic campaign, I required some Gendarmes to patrol the interior lines, so looking through the Confederation troops I found the Saxon Ducal Hussars. Happy with how these figures have tarted up, I added a fanion from a later formation of Saxe Weimar formation. Next unit upgrade more Cuirassiers !The saxe-ducal hussars were a police/gendarme formation numbering between 30- 60 men total. Below is information from several sources, all these are from the Napoleon series.GOETZ (F.) -- Uebersicht der sämmtlichen Abbildungen des Grossherzoglich.
