Dragoons 'Revamped' (1)

First of my dragoons regiment revamps now completed; I added 6 new figures to bring the total unit strength up to 15 and made up a 'horse holder' base.

The new boys:  officer (Jacdaw),  ensign (Drabant) and dragoons (Sash & Sabre)
The whole regiment deployed, with 'horse holder' base at the rear..


  1. Fine looking lads, sir. But I'd lock up my daughter (if I had one) if they were around.

    PS -- I am getting very tired of proving I'm not a robot . . . much of the time the "words" (particularly the numbers) are unreadable . . . I often choose not to comment on sites that use "verification" because of the frustration it causes me.

  2. Jeff - have now switched off the robot checking on my blogs :)

  3. Excellent!

    (I read somewhere that some of the verification stuff is actually an exercise in improving OCR, by having a large number of humans type in what they think it is. Apparently you can be "incorrect" and still have it go through. Maybe it only has to be in the right ballpark? I have noticed in the last few weeks a lot of the verifications look like bits from printed matter, metal tags, etc.)
