New Brits for Light Bobs

chrisparkergames.com

I just finished up a long waiting project which is to flush out a company of mounted British Light Dragoons.

 

I don’t recall who made these figures as I have had them in a tray and unpainted for at least 4 years.  in fact I bought them long before I went down the 54mm road and then the 40mm scale road.

My Bases

Up until a year ago I always painted my bases a medium green that I had mixed at the Depot.  I used this paint for my table top so it gave my game a very consistent look.  Recently though I have deviated from that and come up with my own procedure for terraining my bases.

Light Bobs – Green Dragoons

Chris Parker Games

After reading “The Green Dragoon” and reviewing it I decided to round out my Tarleton’s legions green dragoons.

I had one unit of 6 green dragoons and a few stray mounted figures.  I didn’t want to buy a pack of dragoons for just a few miniatures so I took a tip from Pikeman’s Lament.  Some of the players with that game include dismounted troops on their dragoon bases.  I had a good assortment of legion infantry left so I did just that.
