OK so I promised you shots of the British Infantry but still have not finished them - trying to source flags cheap and will probably make my own using internet piccies.

However I have finished off my first French Unit - a rather wonderful set from Perry - their French Dragoons. Each box comes with 13 riders and eight infantry figures. I had not appreciated the French Dragoons still fought on foot.
Mine have been painted with the rather fetching pink facings
The cavalry unit of 12 figures looks super imposing
Four of them have been given red plumes to denote they are members of the elite squadron and I figured one of these should carry the regiment's Eagle
You will have noticed that the cavalry mounts are all different colours - I figured being a dragoon unit it wouldn't matter too much BUT the trumpeter has been given a grey mount and is wearing the Imperial regulated colours rather than the reverse facings. The Officer has been mounted on a round base so he could become a Brigade commander if needed.
Whilst finishing off these Dragoons I used the opportunity to finish the basing of the first British Cavalry regiment - a rather splendid unit of light Dragoons
