Front Rank - Spanish Dragoon officer


Oh Dear, I seem to have missed out posting in May. 
I painted up this and a few other Napoleonic figures, for our pal and fellow Reject Ian.
The figures is a Front Rank Napoleonic Spanish Horse/Dragoon Officer code SNC5. The figure is painted up to represent an officer from the Almansa Dragoon regiment.

  1. Beautiful figure & colors, Ray. One of my favorite Napoleonic uniforms - ever since seeing in an old uniform book. I painted a converted Airfix in the uniform as a kid. Best, Dean

    1. Absolutely! As for the job front? Slowly, very slowly, its fine if I want to work for £6.50 an hour, but I don't!! I may have to get a job in London, and I really don't want to do that!!!

  12. Lovely jubbly Ray! Not that you'll be seeing that yellow for long on the tabletop. Spanish Cavalry! Couldn't be wearing a more appropriate colour if they tried.

    (Though, to be fair, it probably had more to do with the poor quality of their horses than their courage).
