Tarleton's Light Dragoons


As requested mr Meltzer in the Hä forum I have posted pictures of my Tarleton's Dragoon conversions here.

The base for these figures is Italeri's AWI Light Dragoons. Mind you, you have to use the knife on these: all the horses have tassels on their shabraques these should only be present on the officer's horse. Then all troopers wear gorgets (what was Italeri thinking when they made these?) so you either only paint them for the officers or you remove them totally.

The heads are all from the ESCI RHA set which are useless figures anyway due to the uniform inaccuracies.

Hi Sander,

WOW! They certainly look the part, and the conversion is very clever! Thanks for posting the pictures and giving us a peek.
