Naumarkisches Dragoons - finished

Just in the nick of time for Vintage Leipzig here are the completed 6th Naumarkisches Dragoons. The figure used is PN.81 Prussian Dragoon (mounted) charging. All the castings are reproductions figures (but nice ones) and the trumpeter is a conversion from the same figure.

I didn’t have a unit of Dragoons in my original 1970s Prussian army but always wanted one having been inspired by the illustration of a trooper of the 1st Koningin Dragoons in my Blandford Uniforms of Waterloo. I went with the Naumarkisches regiment simply because this is the uniform described in the Hinton Hunt painting instructions.

I’ve actually accumulated quite a force of Prussian cavalry now when these are added to the Cuirassiers and Uhlans. All three regiments will shortly be seeing action in Blucher’s Army of Silesia in the forthcoming Leipzig game.

Lovely stuff. Those great coats are a little lighter than I expected. They look good.

Outstanding! And are those Brunswickers lurking in the background?

A worthy addition to the collection.

Very nice. What blue did you use?

Thanks for the comments!

Matt B - not Brunswickers but actually some Austrians, a bit late for the Leipzig game though.

Anon - the blue is Foundry 23a Tomb Blue.
