WIP Dragoons


I've been a bad boy on eBay, and have bought another two dozen dragoons, all fortunately very nicely painted (half by Shaun Duncan, half by Wraith on Wheels), and needing no work.  Here they are, in the process of being re-based to my basing standard (45mm frontage for 2 mounted or 3 foot).  When they are combined with these, my first more-or-less completed higher-level Napoleonic formation looks like being a brigade of Dragoons.  I'll work towards all of the units having 24 figures, but they may remain under strength for some time.

In the background I'm basing three more stands of Garde Chasseurs painted by Shaun, and detailed by me.  I'm hoping to muster three 36 man battalions of these, and two of Young Guard.  Elitist, moi?

  3. looks like a great buy to me you are really building a nice force by the sounds of it. It's a shame Craig and i are on the other side of the world I think we would enjoy playing you and your forces. We are the olny ones in our club to play 28mm but now that we have started we just can't seem to stop. Love all your blogs keep up the great work.

  4. Thanks chaps!

    Yes it is a great pity, Kent. I hope I'll be ready to try a game with mine by Feb/March- my issue is I don't have enough line infantry yet, and can't be fagged to paint them!

    I'm quite curious to try Lasalle; all my minis are based for it (although I've tended to make the units rather larger).

    Cheers, Simon

  5. Cracking buy,
    I usually have to keep this sort of thing quiet from the wife and watch the door like a hawk for the postman.
