Colonel-General Dragoons

Dragoons were basically mounted infantry. Thus these Front Rank figures, with their boot-gaiters ('bottines'), short red coats and muskets really look the part.

French dragoons were equipped with tools, such as axes, bill-hooks or saws, instead of off-side holsters, and these are faithfully represented on these models.

I particularly like the way Front Rank have posed the officer on the far end, looking to the dressing of his line. The drummer is also a nicely detailed figure, carrying his infantry-style drum.

I used the Nec Pluribus Impar website for painting details, along with the Funcken uniform books.
