The last week was a bit disrupted with wedding anniversary and birthday celebrations, so this regiment has taken a little more time. But here it is.
About this time astute readers will be thinking " now hang on a minute, this looks exactly like the post of 17 June titled 28e Dragons: all Perry plastics and with orange facings..." But you would be wrong to think that because while the figures and facings are the same they are in fact two separate units (the key differentiator being that the 30e elite squadron has the bearskin, whereas the 28e have the plumed helmet) and his is an image of the two units side by side.
This completes the four regiments in two brigades that form the 6th Heavy Cavalry Division as it stood at Borodino. Still to come are the command figures and the horse batteries.
Also completed are 16 of the 24 dismounted troopers. Since the remaining eight are yet to arrive, I shall post a few shots of them in a few weeks’ time.
