British 6th Cavalry Brigade Waterloo
18th (King's Irish) Regiment of (Light) Dragoons (Hussars). 6th Brigade were commanded by Sir Richard Vivian Hussey at Waterloo, the 6th Brigade (commanded by Sir Richard Vivian Hussey) was posted on Wellington's left flank. In the late afternoon, Vivian's regiments, with those of Vandeleur's 4th Brigade, were moved to support the hard-pressed center of the line. After the repulse of Napoleon's Imperial Guard, Vivian's hussars made the final charge of the day between Hougomont and La Haye Sainte, sweeping everything before them. These figures are from the perry British Hussar box set and are a joy to paint. Next up is the 1st KGL then sir Vivian Hussey himself, I had been hoping that perry would do British cavalry commanders in metal, but I think I'll need to look elsewhere for my command.
