The Comardo Dragoons - Pictures

The Dragoons obligingly gallop past for the camera.
 As promised, I got out the Comardo Dragoons and the camera this evening and, as the thunderstorms crackled away above, got busy snapping away.
Conversion of the regular Dragoon trooper - yes, the flag-pole has been thrust through his foot.
 In the Alzheim Cavalry, the senior NCO carries the unit's colours. His distinctive mark is metallic lace on his hat and shabraque.

 Ow, on closer examination, I could have been a little more thorough with shaving this chap's flash down!
 The Regiment sweeps forward in line. On the table, this unit has a huge footprint.
The proud parent!

Nicely done. Your horse colors are realistic and the uniforms have a genuine feel for the period.
Congratulations!

Not available publically are they? They don't appear to be on the Tradition website.

Sadly no longer in production,

However the HE site in scandinavia is now making the 30 mm so there is hope

also the hussars originally came with long thin plumes possibly making them part of the Karoliner range
