2nd (Royal North British) Dragoons
The figures are all from the Brigade Games range and are lovely Paul Hicks sculpts although they do take a bit of clean up to remove all the mould vents etc.
Cavalry are always a slow burn for me and these fellows were no exception. I'd cleaned up the figures while still in Wisconsin, painted the horses while in quarantine and made a start on the riders a couple of weeks ago only getting around to finishing the highlights this last weekend.
I went for a mix of greys, some off of a cream basecoat and some off of a light grey base coat and I think they blend in quite well together.
There is no Ensign in this pack but instead this rather splendid sergeant, who could be a suitable figure to represent Sergeant Ewart.
A close up of a couple of the troopers.
