This one contained 18 x DK215 British Royal Dragoons which when combined with Don's squadron (click here) will provide a mounted force that ought to please even the cavalry phobic Duke. For the sake of balance there were also 10 x DK46 French Guard Grenadier-a-Cheval (just what I need to bolster the Guard cavalry).
DK46 French Guard Grenadier-a-Cheval, a very similar figure to Hinton Hunt FN/56.
There were some lovely DK British command figures, three vintage Hinton Hunt BN/2 British Sergeant (charging) and one BN/80 Guards Officer in bearskin (charging). Marcus Hinton produced his British Guards infantry wearing the full-dress bearskin although these were not worn on campaign – I have an example of a sergeant in my British Foot Guards (click here).
Fresh off the playing fields of Eton, Guards officer BN/80.
Another very useful item was a French Limber AL3 as this was the only limber in the Napoleonic range that I was lacking. This means that I will finally be able to put together a French limber team to complement the artillery contingent (click here).
This is French Limber AL3 and is either a vintage model or a Clayton casting.
All welcome and useful additions to the lead pile but for now it’s back to painting tartan!
