Covenanter Dragoons and/or Commanded Shotte

I had a few spare shot from the main regiments left over and had bought a box of the Perry ECW dismounted dragoons.  With some hacking and shaving, then some greenstuff into bunnets these guys were born.  Some of the hats look a wee bit big but they were probably supplied from a street trader in the Barras.

When not deployed as dragoons, they can form the body of a commanded shote unit, with the spare command I have from Buchanans.  Perry's Dragoons are really nice - the two crouching guys in particular are great sculpts.

 

Wee Alec and his awfa big bunt


No shootin till ye see the whites of their eyes!

Thanks fellas - was a nice sunny day here in Houston yesterday. Mind you sometimes the sun is so hot you can't pick up figures without getting burnt!

Nice work on these; I don't like seeing figures go to waste also.
