Hello Marko
Are you sure this painting is by J Hensel ? I believe to aknowledge the fashion of P Fourquet.A friend of mine makes groups by soldering figures, then mold them for casting.
As I have just completed the painting of this group I take the liberty of dysplaying it. It features hussards of the 2nd regiment in the campaingn dress.Richard

A nice set I purchased from Ebay.de that is also available from Scholtz.

Gardes d'Honneur were 4 regiments of light cavalry created by Napoleon in 1813 colorfully dressed as hussars and attached to the Guard.

Originally I was struck by this outstanding rendition.
