REN 16A. Light Cavalry, with steel spears
£9.00 incl. VAT
Light Cavalry in 3/4 armour and sallets, carrying steel spears. These figures are based on European mounted troops who typically fought as supporting ranks to Gendarmes and knightly classes. They were slightly less armoured than the full harness of knights. They could be termed archers or coustillers, in French armies and similar mounted cavalry appear in most European armies. They were later superseded by the Chevau-légers in French armies in the Italian Wars around the 1530s. These can also be used as standard bearers.
