Dragoon close-ups

 
I've posted a few close-up photos of the dragoons, particularly the Elites, which I painted myself, and which I'm particularly pleased with.  I converted the minis by giving them epaulettes, which was quite easy, what with them being plastics, and all.


The below stand, with a casualty figure worked out quite nicely, too; something about the way they are stepping, gingerly, past the body.


Finally, with the below pic, I suspect the original painter cut down a musket, and used the arm with the slung musket from the Victrix line infantry set.


I've spent the last few nights sticking together 42 more Victrix Garde Chasseurs (a 4th battalion).  Nice minis...
