    Hello folks,
    A side project and maybe an addition to the in progress Swiss and French guard

    The Montmorency dragoon wore the traditiinal dragoon green with crimson lapels , cuffs , long vertical pockets and white buttons.
    I have used a spared torso from Modelles Et Allures from France, seating legs from a Miniwelt figure, horse as well, and spare head from JMD.

    I have finish the crest base, the mane will be added tomorrow.
    Added the side round star shape fasteners or whatever the name is lol.
    Added the unfringed and fringe epaulettes and right arm resting on the hip, a very common pose especially for a snobby French Officer of the Ancien Regime.
    I added the waist belt and lower edge of the vest and buttons on the lapels ( 7 each side).
