  Topic Description
Posted by: scratchbuilder Does anyone fancy a Warrior on the evolution of the Cuirassier, between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries? I haven't included the nineteenth century because the cuirassier essentially finished its military evolution as a troop type, with the introduction of new riding styles in the mid eighteenth century. Also there is adequate of coverage of napoleonic cuirassiers in Osprey already. Please Discuss.

That's not really what the warrior series is meant to do - if you look at the author's notes, it is aimed at providing a detailed look at a particular troop type in a particular time and place, with strong emphasis on the experience of the troops. The time frame you are looking at is rather too long, and the focus doesn't match - it's the equivalent of asking for a warrior book covering "Artillerymen of all european countries 1700 - 1980", to look at the evolution of gunnery. That said, maybe there would be a possibility in one of the series better suited to it, like Elite?

Fair enough Mr Hunter. I was thinking of The Matchlock Musketeer, which is a Warrior publication and covers a century of development, 1588 to 1688. I would be happy to see it as an Elite, just so long as it does get published.

A fair point, but even the matchlock musketeer book covers only a hundred year span, whereas what you are proposing covers three centuries

Cuirassiers are popular with nearly all readers. An elite book on their heyday (when they wore 3/4 armour), during the 16th and 17th Centuries, would be immensely of interest. Possibly also warrior titles covering specific periods of interest during the 18th &19th Centuries (still employed in large numbers even right up to (and including) the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71 (on both sides), would also be a great idea. I know alot of people who would buy such titles.

I don't doubt the appeal of the material; my point was that it would fit better into one of the other series, rather than warrior

I think an elite would be more appropriate as Mr Hunter pointed out. A good idea but my personal choice would be an elite book on their heyday (when they wore 3/4 armour), during the 16th and 17th centuries.

If there is support for a Cuirassier series, covering the evolution, history and developement of this branch of service; rather than a single consolidated book, no one would be happier than I.

Thinking also for a Elite. Or some for more specific time/place of tte cuirassier. Or maybe a new serie about "Armour", as for the already MAA published Flak jackets and soldiers eqipments (as "weapon")?

An elite book about the Cuirassiers is something i would love to have. I am sure a lot of others would too.
