Cavalry Refit: British Heavy Dragoons

Another pair of cavalry units make it out of refit and reorg.  Each unit received one additional recruit and a rebasing exercise from four stands of two figures each to three stands of three figures each.  This time two British heavy dragoons units make it off the workbench.  The two units are the 3rd Dragoon Guards and the 4th Dragoon Guards.  Two fine British cavalry regiments.  Figures are Front Rank.
What remains in the cavalry refit and reorganization?  Waiting their turn at the recruitment center are two KGL cavalry units, two French hussar units, and a unit of Vistula Legion lancers.

  4. Very nice, that is a goodly number to process. I prefer basing of three to the basing of two and the extra figure in the line-up does add something to visual presence that seems greater than one would think a single figure would make.

    1. Yes, I am preferring the three figures to two as well. The odd number of stands and the ueven number of figures per stand adds an aesthetically pleasing ‘odd’ effect to the unit.

  6. Figures look good! This is starting to be the never ending project! Which makes it like a lot of other wargaming projects so no matter. 😀
    Keep chugging away at it!

  7. Used to seeing the heavies in helmets (but that might just be my lack of familiarity with the British). I like the look of the bicornes!

  9. Good looking stuff. I like how a few variations in sword position can add a lot of animation to the unit.

  11. Nicely done. I did try staring at the enlarged photos for a while to see if I could pick the "new guy", but couldn't. (Which one is he, by the way?)

    1. Thanks! I guess I have only one way to paint and that method has not changed in years.

  17. Excellent Dragoons Jonathan! What rules are you using?

    1. Thanks, Mike! I have been using rules of my own doing. If you are interested in reading how the rules play, search the blog using terms “28mm Peninsular War” and “Battle Report” to find several examples.

  18. They are lovely Jonathan. I think I prefer the dragoons in bicorne over the late helmet.
