Perry Miniatures French Napoleonic Dragoons 1812-1815
The box contains 13 mounted dragoons, 8 dismounted (this allows for horse holders) , 6 casualties (French and British Infantry), unit bases and painting guide. Torsos for the correct ratio of troopers for the elite company are included, both in helmets and the old bearskins retained by some regiments. The dragoon's traditional role of dismounting to fire use long musketoons was still, on occasion performed, but since 1800 they had evolved into regular cavalry. The box includes mounted and dismounted figures to allow their full range of duties to be represented.
