Product Description

NA170 “Mounted Officer”

“Vive les Dragons a Pied!”

(“Long Live the Foot Dragoons!”)

For several years (1803-1806) Napoleon’s Armies suffered an amazing shortage of horses… This meant that some cavalry units and Regiments were forced to fight on foot. Perhaps the most famous were the Dragoons. Originally formed as mounted infantry the Emperor decreed that the Dragoons would be better suited to fight as dismounted soldiers than any of their cavalry compatriots.

Although they never liked losing their horses the Dragoons performed admirably in this new role for a limited period. After all, the Emperor’s orders were… the Emperor’s wishes! End of story…

K&C has produced no less than 15 different troopers of the famed 16th. Dragoons of the line. In their green tunics with rose pink facings only one of our figures is mounted the remainder are in marching, parade or action poses.

Take a closer look.
