So this will be my last regular Thursday post, and possibly my final post for the Challenge. After a clear out week last week (3 posts), real life has slowed me down big time. Most notably a four day trip across Canada for a family funeral. But I have finally finished my 15th Light Dragoons for my SYW Sharp Practice project.
|Figures are of course 28mm from the Perry AWI Range- the whole range is gold, go look at them!|
|Oops I need to straighten out some sabres down the line.|
Just in case anyone suspects me of recycling the same figures week after week, I present to full regiment (for my purposes). That's two squadrons of 8 troopers, each with an officer. In addition there is a bugler and two pickets with pistols out.
This week that's 4 mounted 28mm figures for 40 points, bringing me to 699 points YTD. I need another 101 points to hit my target. There's an outside possibility of that happening but what's next on the workbench includes more lace wars stuff. I've really enjoyed returning the the Lace Wars but they these units require that you pack a lunch and make it a full day's outing, so I'm not holding my breath on hitting my 800 pt target
This is a splendid unit, Peter! They are really impressive when ranked up! I like the addition of the outriders for the utility in gaming too. It has been a treat minioning your collection of 7YW stuff. Most of my research is in the fighting around the Great Lakes which is mainly Marines, Rangers, and the Tribes. I know little of the European side save that some of the nations wore wigs and hats with metal inserts! ;)
Still you have amassed quite the collection for Sharp Practice and this force of dragoons is one of my favorites of the lot!
Keep your powder dry and perhaps you will get another volley off before challenge end....or at least a snap fire! ;)
