Cuirassier Command

By Michael Cannon / September 16, 2008

I am considering giving the regiment the informal name of "The Lillies" as they are in all-white uniforms. (OK, except for the kettledrummer – I followed the Napoleonic practice of having the uniform reversed for musicians.) The flag I think I will use is a French Royal flag shown below.

 

I will be mounting the individual squadrons on mounts that are unique per squadron. I am thinking bays (dark brown) for the 1st, roans for the second, and dapple grays or blacks for the third. There’s no specific reason for this except that it would be different.Clicking on the images below will give you a larger image whereas the one above will not… after all, the flag is not necessarily detailed! If you want a copy of the flag graphic, let me know and I’ll email it to you. Anyone with any clever ideas as to unit history is welcome to contribute!

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
