I've been playing again................
Following on from the previous post. The charging French dragoons were originally painted as a large 'old school' unit - so there are quite a lot of them. (Enough for 3 of my smaller 8 man units if I paint up two more standard bearers and musicians)
Having done the first unit with a straight swap of heads with tricorn I decided to be a bit more adventurous. and make a unit in forage cap. I used the 'bonnet de police' from the SYW French infantry - again it fits quite well and looks fine size wise.
I have to admit that this combination of the Karoliner charging cavalry and the new SYW heads is really growing in me, and I might cast up some more?
Interestingly, when I started this project all I asked PA to produce were some more heads!
