This is a unit I painted a while ago, the 16th Light Dragoons in the 1812 uniform. They have made very little impression on the cornfield they have just trotted through lol.
It took me quite a while to paint this unit of Perry Miniatures, but it was very enjoyable all the same. I will perhaps use a darker shade of blue for the coats in the future. Having said that I think that the brighter colour gives them a faded look that suits a campaign feel. The dyes in the coats were not permanent for the average OR. The officer would obviously have had a better quality jacket.
