last week I decided to do a test painting of my Electorate dragoon regiment, the Osterhaagen Dragoons. I always paint the command for that.
for this unit I used Front rank Austrian Dragoons with swords shouldered. as usual the front rank offerings are quite nice, and paint up well.
The officer on the left is Colonel Inhaber Karl von Osterhaagen, and the officer on the left is leutnant Torston Eberhart.
Since the dragoons descent from infantry formations, their ranks and flags resemble those of the infantry. As with infantry standards, the tassel colour is the same as the cross colour on the standard.
in other news, I was up for a quick visit at J&M miniatures HQ. I picked up a copy of Chain of Command and Maurice(and accompanying cards). I'm in the process of reading Maurice, and hope to try a game out some time in the next week.
