AB British Light Dragoons

I've had some time to paint over the last couple of weeks or so as I've been fighting off a cold and managed to finish up the British light dragoons I bought 6 months ago. This has been sort of a gap in my collection for a long time.

Here is the 14th Light Dragoons. The trooper without a helmet (rear rank, center) was an interesting variant from AB. Sometimes we forget equipment could be lost or destroyed and replacements scarce.

And lastly, here is the 16th Light Dragoons. I chose to paint units which were active in the Peninsular War and the orange facings was something a bit less common in the British army. I'm happy with how they turned out and look forward to seeing them on the field.

I've been working on 6mm Baccus French Napoleonics for a while. In March I hope to have them debuted here. For grand tactical games, smaller figures can make larger game possible without the need for a super-sized table.
