Building some Nyland Dragoons

sorry for my absence, summer vaccation in Darlecarlia and no proper internet access, posting this through the phone... I have some old pictures from my Finnish War 1808-1809 with the build of a Squadron of 7 dissmounted Nyland Dragoons. There will be 7 mounted to, but as this project still are on Hold they Will have to wait...

Here comes some WIP pictures from the Build and of the 7 Dragoons before you get the painted ones...


The minis I used was the Perry British Riflemen, with Arms/Rifles/Sabres from the Perry Dissmounted French Dragoons. The fethers was from a bunch of French Hussar heads my friend Tony fixed.


As they was wore short hussar coats I had to do some cuting... To the left you have before and to the right after...







Ammo bags are from Victrix Austrians kindly furniched by Burkhard.

Now there are just some painting to do...

Some pictures of how they should look like, please excuse my shortcuts in some of the converssions...

  1. Great to see you return to this period, the conversions look super. Is that a Knötel plate you have as reference? Anyways, hope you are enjoying the easy life up there in beautiful Dalecarlia. Watch out for that Revell glue buddy, working in the fumes from that little thing can have the same effect as a few Schnaps ;0)

  2. Impressive conversion work! Plastics are so cool to use for these projects. I did some scalpel work on GW Empire arms to go on Perry WotR recently. Best, Dean
