28mm British Dragoons (Elite Miniatures)

The last of the cavalry that I got last year from Nathan Vinson of Elite Miniatures Australia. This time a regiment of British Dragoons in the old uniform. I really liked these guys in their bicornes. They have brass chin-scales to keep them on in the charge but these guys have theirs tied up, so I imagine two seconds after these photos the hats would be all over the field of battle.  There were a couple of models with broken swords so I removed them and inserted a piece of wire.

My next painting binge will be on the rest of the Spanish and English cavalry that Nathan has just posted – Two regiments of Spanish Line cavalry/Dragoons (not sure what I will do them as yet), a regiment of Spanish Hussars and one of British Hussars.

Once again Nathan gave me a baker’s dozen of figures. I had an extra casting. Waste not, want not – he is now based as an individual figure for use as a Colonel, or for skirmish gaming.

    1. Thanks Carlo. I am not sure how you do the big battalions and cavalry regiments for General de Brigade without going crazy. Twelve figure Cavalry regiments are enough for me.

    1. Elite and Front Rank are about the same size, give or take a smidgen. I wouldn’t mix the cavalry in the same unit because the style is quite different, but infantry mix OK. I have done that in some of my Spanish battalions – used Elite troops and some Front Rank command figures.
