Here are my first napoleonic units painted in a (long!) while. These guys have been sitting half-painted on my shelves for about 2 years!
They are from the Italeri Prussian Light Cavalry set - though dragoons were not light cavalry, so no idea why Italeri named them so. But the real issue with this set was the horrible horses, so I used the ones from the early prussian cuirassiers set, instead.
The first regiment of prussian dragoons I painted is the 1st West Prussians (2nd Reg. of Dragoons). For this unit I picked the standing to order models on the set, so to make the unit more uniform, as the other poses in the box were all very active, and I combined them in another regiment.
In order to give these models some distinction, I cut and repositioned some of the heads, so that some are facing forward, while others are looking to either side.
For my second unit of prussian dragoons, I went with red facings and white buttoms, which makes them the 4th Reg. of Dragoons: The 2nd West Prussians.
Excellent looking troops.ReplyDelete
