302212001 - Polish Line light lancers

The Poles have been excellent horsemen for generations and in their innumerable clashes with Russia had learned to fight the lance-armed Cossacks, equipping themselves with a 9-foot wooden lance with a wicked spear point and coloured guidon beneath the blade.

Lancers were technically light cavalry but considered themselves the equal of better-mounted troops by dint of the dispiriting lance which would outreach enemy Sabres and enable them to dispatch infantry who ran or feigned death.

These fine models in their fabulous uniforms could be fielded in a single brigade or of course placed in regular light horse brigades for added colour.
