I received my Zvezda cuirassiers in the mail this week! They are the dog's whatsits as far as I'm concerned. I just wish that Zvezda did more, a la HaT, but they seem to concentrate on only the elites and only from the 1812 Russian campaign. A small gripe for a kit that is just about the most perfectly produced set ever! I've seen Zvezda kits described as 'wargaming porn' and I wouldn't dispute it.
To celebrate, I've posted a YouTube clip from the French film Le Colonel Chabert of the cuirassier charge at Eylau 1807. Epic stuff, even if not accurate; charging full pelt from the start leaves them completely unformed by the time they reach the Russian infantry. I also wish the poster had left the original soundtrack, not covered it with his music, even if it is very stirring.
