15mm AB Napoleonics French Dragoons

Here we have some French Dragoons they represent the 25e regiment there are 12 in the unit as you will note there is not an eagle with them. As always they are AB from Eurika Miniatures the horses have some great poses I will say these had more flash than I have seen on these miniatures before but they mostly cleaned up well . I have painted the Dragoons trousers in doe skin look they did not have campaign overalls sculpted and as the trousers are not showing a lot I did not want to go to the trouble of painting on buttons etc . But you could paint them grey if you wanted to it depends how much different you want to make them .
  The horses I have painted as dark and light bays with some painted as dark and light chestnut with the usual white or grey musicians mount . using the bottom of the varnish pot has robbed some of the highlites and my usual pictures are not helping . These ones will be on ebay in a couple of days if you want to take a punt or if you want something like them please feel free to ask for a quote .
On the table I have some more late Romans and at last I can get to grips on some of my own 15mm British Naps . So until next time enjoy the hobby and keep safe .
Regards Gavin (aka Furphy) .
