The Bayrum and Anthill Dragoons

Another troopship from Scotland arrived yesterday carrying the second half of Der Kleine Fritz's army.

It brought the second half of the first two cuirassier regiments, another infantry battalion, the converged grenadiers, some jaegers, two guns, and these fellows:

The Bayrum and Anthill Dragoons



As always the service from Alternative Armies was first rate. The painting, as you can see was splendid as well. 

There was a slight hiccup with the order in that although the dragoons received the correct standards, their coats were split among the yellow and white of the two cuirassier regiments. 

Twenty minutes or so with the paint brush set all to right.

That just about completes this army for old school gaming. Three 40 figures line battalions, one 40 figure grenadier battalion, one 36 figure light infantry battalion, a 20 strong regiment of hussars, two 20 strong cuirassier regiments, the 20 strong dragoons above, and six guns along with extra officers, and casualty figures.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Great paintwork! However, newer research has shown that the 1808 Anthill Dragoons had GREEN facing....no, no, I can't do it, even in jest. :-) Seriously, they look great!
