My Spanish dragoons look like nothing so much as the Toytown Troopers! Maybe it was a mistake picking a unit with such a garish combination of yellow, blue and red!
But fortunately this is only the halfway mark in painting them. Hopefully the next stages in my paint job, with the white straps, silver on the brown undercoated swords, and all the other detailing still to do, will soften the clownish effect.
These are lovely figures to paint, though. Front Rank miniatures are an absolute painter’s dream, with clean sculpting, crisp casting and clear details.
