Dragoon Regiment Fimarcon

The second regiment in my dragoon brigade, I particularly liked the dark green uniform, an unusual feature in the French army of the period. The unit served both in Flanders (Steenkirk and Neerwinden) and in Italy. The troopers are all Dixons mounted on their smaller dragoon ponies; the officer and standard bearer are Foundry. The flag (a bit of a luxury in 40mm scale) is from GMB.

Over the next couple of months I hope to start featuring other parts of my growing collection.
