Naked ! !

Well unpainted dragoons anyway ! ! Here we have L to R Dixon, Bluemoon and Essex, I have a beef with all of them, even though they are my choosen figures, as they are all compatable, if not in the same unit certainly within the same army. Dixons, good figures, but they do lack variety and movement, and choice of horses, Essex, again a lack of movement in the figures however they do have a variation in horse poses, but some of these are dire, Bluemoon, infantry about 2mm bigger than Dixon/Essex so these must look small next to their infantry, not completed painting any yet, but they do lack raised detail and 1 of poses of the horses, is absolutly awful, after all that moaning, I am happy overall with all of them, but please can I have the Dixons in the poses of Bluemoon with Essex horses in decent action poses.

Nice Tea-towel

Oh and the figures arn't bad either
Just a few pics of my latest figures, finished a Hanoverian infantry brigade, the last 2 infantry regiments are on here, De Luc, white coats and green facings, De Charles, red facings, green facings.
The cavalry are French, Royal Allmand, La Reine and Commissaire General. All the figures are Dixons, French flags are from Maverick Models and the Hanoverians from AJ Dumelow.
I've ordered some Bluemoon cavalry figures to complete the Hanoverians, having visited the Old Glory stand at Derby and compared figure sizes for match. The cavalry are a good match whilst the Bluemoon foot figures are a couple of mil bigger than Dixon and Essex figures

Oh and the Cuirrasier unit is the Bavarian Arco Regt
