TRENT MINIATURES HISTORICAL
FRENCH REVOLUTIONARY WARS 1796 – 1800
Lombardy Legion Hussars Command pack
This blister pack contains three mounted unpainted figures and horses. The photo shows an Officer and Guidon bearer of the Lombardy Legion Light Cavalry squadron. ( The flag is available from the ‘Flag Dude’ and is not included in the set). The Trumpeter is also included in the set but shown in the picture as one of the independent squadrons of ‘Requisition Hussars’. Several squadrons of these were raised by various North Italian towns. THese figures can be painted up as many different regiments from many different Italian states.
The Lombardy Legion was the first Italian force raised by the French during their ‘liberation’ (conquest) of Italy. It existed during 1796-1797. It consisted of four ‘Battalions’ ( later seven) of infantry, one cavalry squadron and one battery of artillery.
The French Revolutionary Wars were a series of major conflicts, from 1792 until 1802, fought between the French Revolutionary government and several European states. Marked by French revolutionary fervour and military innovations, the campaigns saw the French Revolutionary Armies defeat a number of opposing coalitions and expand French control to the Low Countries, Italy, and the Rhineland. The wars involved enormous numbers of soldiers, mainly due to the application of modern mass conscription.
The French Revolutionary Wars are usually divided between those of the First Coalition (1792–1797) and the Second Coalition (1798–1801), although France was at war with Great Britain continuously from 1793 to 1802. Hostilities ceased with the Treaty of Amiens 1802, but conflict soon started up again with the Napoleonic Wars.
