’Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. Wait! That is not this house! Activity is buzzing here including some work at the painting desk. Rather than Santa and his reindeer making an appearance, the Napoleonic cavalry reorganization yields its first group of newly organized cavalry.
As briefly mentioned in an earlier post, the 28mm Napoleonic Peninsular War project is undergoing a reorganization. Unit strength is being lifted from the former eight figures per BMU to nine figures per BMU. One BMU drops from four stands of two figures each down three stands of three figures each. This reorg requires one additional trooper per unit to be requisitioned and painted. The first six units muster out under their new organization. Six new figures among the old. Can you spot the new recruit in each unit? I cannot. Still plenty of cavalry to retrofit but this is a start. Next to tackle; British heavy dragoons.
