Change of plan, I recently picked up some AIP lancers. My intension was to use these in my Ruritanian armies. Unfortunately, I find their scale, particularly the horses, far too large for my 54mm collections. Its particularly noticeable with my Ruritanian soldiers as they comprise a mixture of plastic and metal figures chosen because they were more like 52mm in scale. I would suggest the IAP lancers, which are nice models, look more like 56mm in comparison, and I just don't think it works. Will probably move these lancers on. Here are two photos for comparison. The first shows a lancer behind(!) Ruritanian infantry. The second shows a lancer compared to a Britains 17th Lancer.
