Like a lot of people I've always been a bit nervous about painting horses and therefore cavalry, but needs must and I actually enjoyed painting these 1/72 scale Napoleonic French dragoons by Italeri. I decided to get these figures because previously the only plastic cavalry I had had were the original Airfix cuirassiers, which are really terrible figures. Plus, I thought it would be nice to have dragoons instead for a change.
Airfix one from the 1970s that was still knocking about but had lost a wheel. This was repainted and added to the base.
