Next off the painting table, a unit of Bavarian Dragoons. After 1810 these were all converted to Chevauleger, but pretty while they lasted! Also necessary for some 1809 refights. Perry figures again.
Very large plumes on these!
Bit of a nightmare to paint due to dog tooth border on the saddlecloth. The triangles were done with Vallejo Andreas Blue and white. I painted the white border, then the blue triangles, and then touched up with white. Perry page has them painted with diamonds which would be even more difficult to do, but reference material I have (Rawkins) has them with triangles. Thank goodness. The cords hanging down trumpeter's back have some quite fine detail too.
Weirdly I was sent three Chevauleger horses with this lot, rather than Dragoon horses. The horse equipment is different (see middle two rear horses). I assumed these Dragoons have had to requisition some spare Chevauleger horses so I just added them in!
Next up, and likely just before the end of 2020, will be a couple of units of Bavarian Chevauleger.
