19eme Regiment de Dragons

This, the 19eme, is the first of my Dragoon regiments to reach establishment strength (24).  They were all bought off eBay, painted by Wraith on Wheels to a good tabletop standard, and all I did was a little retouching and re basing to my standard.  I'll add a GMB flag later.  Have a click!

(Note to self- base colour is Graveyard Earth, Highlight GE mixed with Buff Titanium, and sealed with a very thin wash of matt varnish with a tiny hint of Peat ink in it.)

This gives me a total of 54 against the 100 dragoons I need for my 1:20 strength division. I have 12 more ready to base, and 9 currently under the brush, so it's all coming on nicely...  The next two regiments should be at full strength by early January, I reckon, leaving me the fourth, the horse artillery and Divisional commander, which from the Perry's after Xmas.

Can I take this opportunity to wish everyone a merry Xmas, and a very happy, wargamey, New Year!

Cheers, Simon
