French Dragoons.

Gained these Front Rank dragoons from Chris ( a member of the Southern Strategists) a few weeks back. They were already painted by someone unknown. The basing was rather rough, some sort of filler right up to the horses knees! The green coats were a gloss dark green, the facings a very bright orange! The helmets were all wrong too.

Ended up repainting the horses and most of each figure. Based them up and added a GMB flag and Front Rank Eagle.

 These guys could be either the 28th or 30th Regiment of Dragoons. The difference would be on the cuffs that can't be seen on these figures.

 New regiment of Dragoons found moving through a Spanish village.

 Review in front of the village.

  13. Terrific looking figures! Shame they're not in the crimson facings of my great-great-great-great-grandfather's regiment (the 12eme), but he'll forgive you ...
