A question of French cuirassier trumpeters

Inspired by Mick the Painters picsMick the Painter's first post   I have looked into the cuirassier trumpeter's  coat situation. i initially was intrigued by the blue coat.. searching aroundI did indeed a first cuirassier  shown in a sky blue coat. I think this is an example  the parade dress as it matches the coat of a non combatant member of the regimental   All ok though it wouildn't have been my first choice of uniform is the fruit of a mornings research..anything to avaoid the Persian 15s.\

What else can Conquest plastics be used for? ( a WiP) know, the sort of question that
turns up on!!!!!.One thing they can't be used for, thankfully, is Carlists..but..
well I tinkered a bit..Wargames Factory torso on Conquest unarmoured rider's legs and horse,Wargames Factory shield and weapons.. some green stuff work to go on the horse archer, hair ,plume , guard on the left arm ,sword baldric, maybe a blanket roll......I imagine it as a Rohan horse archer..
The Norman..well  a Cconquest torso from the above conversion with the Wargames Factory legs leftover from the above conversion , with conquest shield and axe and hand  from Gripping Beast plastic Vikings ..clever or what???
