Württemburg Cavalryman 1685

I love this image of from the NYPL collection of a horseman on picket duty by the looks of it. Can't tell you how accurate it is but I admire its artistic merits - in particular the horse which is a really well posed beast. Would make an ideal wargames figure if any sculptors are reading this.

That horse pose is very reminiscent of one of the Ral Partha horses from years ago (I think that it was a Tom Meier sculpt).
