One of the participants on Benno's forum made mention that he thought that the Italeri Hussars were some of the best Napoleonic cavalry figures in 1/72 out there and I would tend to agree. They painted up beautifully and there was a great range of poses for both the riders and their horses. All are painted straight out of the box with no conversions necessary this time!
The 3rd Hussars were present at many of the Peninsular battles form 1808 and onwards and should get good play on my gaming board in their role as light cavalry. Here is a list of their regimental war record in the Peninsula.
1809: Calcabellos, Tanoris, Banos, Tamanies and Alba de Tormes
1810: Ciudad-Rodrigo, Almeida, Leria and Alcoluto
1811: Redhina and Fuentes-de-Onoro
