Perry French Dragoons - WIP #5

Yeah - finished the 25th Dragoons. Haven't finished the base yet but I am extremely pleased with the way they turned out. Nothing like some great quality figures to bring out a good paint job!

One thing I like about the hard plastics is the ability to paint some of the more awkward parts, like scabbards and other accessories, on the sprues before adding them. It definitely makes the painting a lot easier. Here I have painted the dragoon's muskets and scabbards on the sprues.

Some other views of the 25th Dragoons; almost ready to start play testing Napoleonic scenarios for Volley and Bayonet.


  1. They're looking really good - those muskets are really well-sculpted too, aren't they. Dean

  2. I have a box of these Perry Dragoons and considered painting some parts on the sprues. It's obviously a bit of a winner by the looks of these pics. Nicely done!

  3. Thanks for the comments. Nothing like great miniatures to make the painting easier!
