Bavarian Carabiniers

Having completed most of my War of Spanish Succession cavalry forces using the Strelets figures I had a quandary over how to use the excellent Zvezda Russian Dragoons. The Prinz Phillip Carabiniers were the obvious answer as they "replaced" the existing Bavarian dragoons after Blenheim.

The great thing about the pack, apart from the sculpting is that there are enough parts to provide both mounted and dismounted versions of the unit. There are a couple of figures left over so the officer will become a general. Still got to decide what to do with the other pack/unit.

Great job and a very useful, versatile troop type.

The other pack... an unit of Frundsberger dragoons, maybe? The Frei Stadt feels neglected, for some time now...

I was wondering where the other dismounted figures come from. As they are at the back I can't see them very clearly.

They look quite fine, sir.

Lovely job, as usual, on both the Artillery and the Dragoons Will. All the best for the Holiday Season to you and yours.
