Empress’s Dragoons

Continuing the theme of my cavalry unit expansions, I have managed to add a further 6 Empress’s Dragoons to the existing half dozen to turn them into a full unit. This time I was able to carry this off without any surgery to the castings other than to convert a trumpeter.

The figures are all original Hinton Hunt one-piece castings of FN/60 Empresses Dragoons (mounted) charging that I stripped and repainted. My thanks to Tony for providing the last few figures I needed via his EK collection.

And here’s a question on the correct spelling - is it Empress’s (as on the HH painting instruction sheet), Empresses (as in the HH catalogue) or Empress’? Answers on a postcard please.
