Napoleonic French Dragoons:
We will soon be releasing our eagerly awaited Napoleonic French Dragoons 1807 to 1812.
These miniatures are a truly dynamic set which convey the ferocity of cavalry going into action, waving or levelling their sabres for the charge.
These Dragoons have been done in the pre-Bardin regulation uniform which has the long tailed coat. This was supposed to have been replaced by the short tailed jacket in 1812 but many continued to wear the long tails well into 1813. These miniatures can easily be used for the invasion of Russia in 1812 and the battle of Leipzig in 1813.
Dragoon regiments had Elite companies which were distinguished by fringed epaulettes and quite often bearskin headdress. We have provided options so you can build your models as line or Elite companies with some fantastic bearskin heads sporting some rakish mustaches!
There were 30 Dragoon regiments in the French army each distinguished by a variety of colours on their turn-backs, collars and cuffs. Yellows, reds, rose pinks, blues etc… making Dragoons some of the most splendid units on the table.
There are 12 figures in the set including an officer, musician and sapper.
Dragoon trooper in pre 1812 uniform:
The figure has the arm options to make him a line Dragoon or Elite company with Epaulettes. Elite company bearskins will be coming. The plume is separate.
Connecting straps need to be added for the Musket and bayonet which will be sorted at a later date.
As with the Polish lancers we are going for some very dynamic poses for our Dragoons.
Dragoon troopers 2 and 3:
With options for line and Elite companies. These will make a really dynamic unit on the table.
