Hinton Hunt: Separate lance arms and Prussian Light cavalry

I have posted up some stuff on the Hinton Hunter blog on my Prussian contingent, which I have finished over the last 6-8 weeks. I have a conspicuous lack of light cavalry, so if anyone has any to swap I would be glad to hear from you. I do have four Prussian Lancers with separate arms, but these arms are missing - I also have the same problem with some FN44 Polish Guard Lancers so if anyone has a supply of these or a source for their replacement I would be very glad to know.

Wanted - British Light Infantry Buglers


Trying to refurb 4 regiments of Les Higgins Napoleonic British Light Infantry. Everything fine, but no decent source of compatible buglers. I have various combinations of converted s-range rifles buglers with new heads - all that. Need something which is significantly more acceptable than that.

Had been quite excited by the new HaT (plastic) set 8186 - British Peninsular War Infantry, which contains very attractive bugler figure with a choice of heads. Alas, figures are very small - no use. Running out of options - the only acceptable figure I am aware of in the scale is the Hinton Hunt Light Infantry bugler - slight mystery here, because I had one (painted up as HLI, which I sold to Ron through eBay!) yet I can't find it in the VINTAGE20MIL lists for HH.

Any other ideas? I need just 4 buglers. Is the new Hinton Compatriots range likely to extend to a Brit LI bugler in the near future? And would I need to buy complete battalions to get some?

As ever, all clues most welcome!
