A variety of figures, sizes, and periods have crossed the painting desk lately. Well, maybe no more than usually seen but it seems like more variety than typical.
This time, a twelve figure regiment of French dragoons for the 1799 project canter off from the paint table. As most figures in this project, the dragoons are from the excellent range of 18mm Napoleonics from AB Miniatures.
These troopers are being fielded as four squadrons of the 13th Dragoon Regiment which saw action at Zurich in 1799.
A second dozen of these fine figures await in The Lead Pile. When dragoons next get pushed into the painting queue for the 1799 project, a regiment seeing more action in the campaign ought be be considered. Perhaps either the 12th or 16th Dragoon Regiments?
No more 1799 releases for now, however. The painting desk is inundated with a medley of figures from several projects. Next off the workbench will likely see either WWII Gebirgsjagers or ancient Celt slingers. Those are still a couple of days out.
