Links to all the Napoleonic Cavalry Regiments Painted in the Project
The original intention of the Nappy Cavalry Project was to paint at least 10 figures for a variety of Napoleonic cavalry regiments during 2015; since then it has continued to grow. The emphasis is on exploring a variety of manufacturers, nations, types and colours. The links below will take you to a post featuring images of painted figures together with brief regimental biographies.
The first regiment of hussars, figures by Italeri.
The fourth regiment of chasseurs a cheval, figures from the “French Light Cavalry” set by Italeri.
The 13th Light Dragoon regiment. Once more, using figures from Italeri.
The Death’s Head Hussars or 1st Leib Hussar Regiment of Prussia. Figures by Waterloo 1815.
The 2nd (Dutch) Red Lancers of the Imperial Guard. Figures from the Zvezda set “Polish Lifeguard Uhlans”.
The 5th Brandenburg Dragoons Regiment, Waterloo era. This set was produced with an extra mounted Jager figure. Figures from Italeri’s Prussian Light Cavalry Set using horses from Italeri’s Prussian Cuirassiers set.

The British 1st Royal Dragoons painted using Waterloo 1815’s British Heavy Dragoons 1812-15.
The Prussian 4th (1st Silesian) Hussars, painted using Waterloo 1815 Prussian Hussars set.

This regiment was painted using Zvezda’s French Cuirassiers set.
Using Italeri’s French General Staff set to produce Napoleon himself with his personal escort, the Chasseurs a Cheval of the Imperial Guard.

The other of the two regiments available in HaT’s Dutch-Belgian Light Dragoons set.
The second regiment produced from Revell’s Life Guards set of figures.
Figures painted from HaT’s now rare Horse Grenadiers set.
This regiment was created using Waterloo 1815’s French Line Lancers set. Figures had separate arms and lances.
The Astrakhan Cuirassier Regiment was painted using Russian manufacturer Zvezda’s “Russian Cuirassiers 1812-1814” set of figures.
The Soum Hussars used Zvezda’s Napoleonic “Russian Hussars 1812-1814” which includes separate pelisses and some lances (a feature of Russian Hussar regiments).
This regiment was created using two Zvezda kits; Russian Dragoons 1812-1814 and Russian Dragoons Command 1812-1814. Most of the figures required some assembly.
The regiment features Italeri Prussian Cuirassiers, all figures chosen so that their bicorne hats broadly face the same way. The officer featured the use of a spare figure’s head.
Figures painted were the “Mamelukes” set by Italeri.
