3rd Squadron, Hapnich Dragoons (Carpania)

The final squadron of the Carpanian Dragoon Regiment Hapnich has finally been completed.  Their uniform is a copy of the Prussian 10th Dragoon Regiment.  They are Old Glory figures.

The second image uses the new background that I acquired at Bayou Wars last month.  It was an insert in a prepainted 28mm building I bought from Bobe's Hobby Shop.  I think it gives the picture a little more realism than the plain blue background I have been using.

In June I also started painting on the first of three squadrons of heavy cavalry for the Duchy of Sachsen-Wachsenstein, using a mix of Austrian and Russian SYW figures from Miniature Figurines.  Pictures will be posted soon.

Finally I also began work on some Europeans and natives for my Darkest Africa forces, getting ready to run a game in early November in the inaugural Colonial Barracks convention in New Orleans.  This will be an all The Sword and the Flame rules Victorian era Colonial gaming convention.  See Larry Brom's webstore, Sergeants3, for more details.

The box insert background looks good
I'm envious of your TSATF convention-going, but I'll be interested to see your Colonial forces develop. Seems like a lot of us like the Colonial period, too.

My Colonial forces have been "developing" long before I started my 28mm Imagi-Nation forces! I have British and opposing native forces for the Sudan, the Northwest Frontier, and Zululand using 25mm Ral Partha, Miniature Figurines, and Scruby figures, as well as a few others.
