    Hello planeteers,
    I've finished this Belsunce dragoon.
    I have converted an existing fusilier figure, got rid of the cartridge box and made the one for dragoons which was a slightly different than the regular infantry cartridge box.
    The head i've use was a hatless head with headband, i did constructed the Dragoon helmet from scratch which i am really happy with the result.
    Finally i've painted the figure in the typical Dragoon green coat and for this regiment, white lapels, cuffs and red collar.
    The figure is from Trident designs a sof the majority of the figures on these panels that form the diorama.
    I decided to place the dismounted dragoon next to the Marquis de St. Simon, which was in command of the Brigade Touraine and volontaires de St. Simon (that included about 50 of these dragoons).
    Regards

    Thanks Mark, i spent quite sometime staring at it when i finished with a smiling face.
    Actually i can't believe that i was able to sculpt that helmet lol.
    I am fear that if i try again it will probably be a failure.
    Cheers

    Excellent details! I had forgotten that you work with wargaming figures. I thought this was a 54mm, till I remembered, your details are so good. Plus, the 18th century is one of my favorite periods. Well done!

    Prost!
