2nd Dragoons(Scots greys)
No, it's because of they service mostly during the WSS but also SYW.
I plan on doing the regiments for both those periods(and yes for Waterloo too)
First up is the WAS/SYW period versions. The miniatures are the wonderful Crann Tara.
I'm quite happy with the troopers but the horses didn't turn out well, I hate to paint white/gray horses. After trying several different techniques like dry brush I decided to try water downed paint. Sadly the highlights didn't have a big enough contrast and so the details get washed out. But I got the taste for it. And I'll keep at it, I've done 4 more horses now and I think the results are already better.
Next up is the Austrian dragoons(with the aforementioned horses) And I went all out with those. (more on that later)
