If the opportunity arises, I always practice on a miniature to see how beautiful the rest will look. This dragoon is a practice model. I realized, as I worked on it, and wait when it comes to posting thumbnail that will allow me to assemble and paint an entire regiment.
This is quite wide assortment of great quality Alex. You are right - the Napoleonic force is indeed the "Holy Grail" for a number of us. Myself, I've gone down the road in 6mm, 15mm, 28mm and lately even 3mm...the road never seems to end...truly one of the more addictive - and at times frustrating - periods and settings to collect. But nothing tops a great Napoleonic game when its all said and done!
No doubt those test dragoons will lead to another sizeable and excellent submission...looking forward to that!
Another sizeable pile of points for you Alex - 400 points! Your goal is already in sight...
