All the King’s Men continues the release of new cavalry models with their new French Carabiniers.

From the release:

All the King’s Men is pleased to announce the release of Napoleonic French carabiniers! They’re in the 1812+ uniforms with breast- and backplates, and Greecian-style helmets. These join the cuirassiers we also released recently. You can see all the details on our Napoleonics page.

These French heavies are 54mm, like all our figures. Riders are cast in metal, while horses and bases are plastic to keep sets lightweight. Assembly is required on the riders who come in the following pieces: body, head, arms, scabbard, carbine and bedroll. Pieces fit together snuggly and are easy to superglue. The result is riders in various poses.

You get 8 figures in each set: 6 troopers, an officer, a bugler, and 8 horses with bases. This setup is ideal for “All the King’s Men” wargames, but you can use these figures for any game or display.

A set is $45 USD before shipping. ATKM ships worldwide. The figures come UNPAINTED. Images here show how they can look painted.

The original riders in this set are owned by Stockade Miniatures in their Soldiers of the World range. We made arrangements for ATKM to offer them to the wargame audience. The horses are from DSG of Argentina. They’re cast from the old Britain Deetail molds, which DSG has owned for some time.

Skeptical of wargaming Napoleonics in 54mm? You can, and not just skirmishes! Check out the “All the King’s Men” rules here are a free PDF:

We’ll be adding a Napoleonic “period rules” addendum soon. It’ll cover such glorious options as mass cavalry charges and grand batteries.
