Here the new realisation of Lithuanian Tartars. This unit was raided in the occasion of the Russian campaign in 1812 but was almost totally annihilated there, so it was raised again and placed under the Guard Scouts regiment. Because of the different uniforms and shortage of reliable uniform description i took a safe position mainly with the horses clothing using the standard guard lancers ones. Together with the 2 default sets of Troopers and Command i will made a 3rd et with more exotic uniforms and scouting poses.and may be an additional set only with horsed with the original saddlecloths of 1812.
In between i realised these 2 sets depicting the Lancers Gendarmes, a unit with the unforgiving duty to repress the guerrilla and to punish the many deserters of the french coalition army. There is a set of 4 mounted gendarmes with a NCO, a trumpet and 2 gendarmes of which one is with surtout; the second set contains a mounted gendarme escorting 3 prisoners, a priest, a Spanish guerrilla man and a deserter. The 2 sets are by the moulding and testing phase and will be ready for sale next month.
