1st Polish Lancers of the Guard

I have finished my Polish Lancer Squadron of two companies. It's a mix of figures (Esci, Zvezda, Hinton Hunt, Les Higgins etc), some of which fit together better than others. On the eventual model they will be arranged so that the more obvious incompatibilities are ironed out. I have an Art Miniaturen pair at the front, one of whom is Prince Poniatowski, who was obviously dead by 1815, so the model represents a senior Polish officer.

There was only one Swiss regiment in L'Armee du Nord, which was with Grouchy, so this Squadron was the only non French unit in Napoleon's Army at Waterloo.
