Scanian War Dragoons



I used 4 minis from each of the Wargames Factory WSS boxes to make me a small unit of mounted and dissmounted Dragoons, they will be painted in the uniform of the Skåne-Bohusläns Dragoon regiment.


Skåne-Bohusläns Dragoon regiment, but I will not paint riding boots as the Dragoons didn´t use them, they had ordinary shoes and kneesocks in the turnback colour as the Infantry. After all they were just mounted infantry, trained to ride to the fight but fight on foot, as they did against the danish Cavalry at Lund in 1676, and that didn´t go so well...


Eack foot mini go their equivalent as a mounted mini (using the same weapons) .


They will be painted in a couple of days and used in our next game od "Snapphanar" as a response to Sörens reinforcements, I have got confirmed information from my spies that he yesterday got a box of Regular Danish Infantry from Warfare Miniatures to stiffen-up his Snapphanar...the armes race have begun...
