Old School Napoleonic French Cuirassier's 28mm

Part of a current commission. I thought some of our older brethren might appreciate these models circa 1986.

I am not entirely sure on manufacturer. The riders do have a mark under the saddle but its too hard to distinguish. Anybody recognize them?

UPDATE - Thanks to everyone who pointed out that they are Hinchliffe!
