Loyalist light dragoons
Here are those loyalist cavalry I mentioned.
The figures are the Perry 4th Continental Light Dragoons, but painted in a uniform more appropriate to loyalists in the south. They are one piece castings, apart from the right arms. I'm not yet convinced that this is vastly better than separate riders and horses but it does allow for a few more dynamic poses.
The chap on the black horse was undercoated black, the one on the grey horse in white and the other four were done with skeleton bone. All seem to match up now they are finished.
The bases aren't finished yet, but I'm already pleased with the rather smart appearance of this unit.
They will appear as the NY dragoons when I game Hobkirk's Hill.
