I will be painting 4 'real' Dragoon regiments and 3 'faux' regiments. The latter were dragoon regiments converted to Cuirassiers during the course of the war but it is unknown when they received their new uniforms (remember they were almost constantly on campaign) and certainly they are unlikely to have been given heavy Cuirassier horses to replace their rather small (by comparison to Prussian dragoon horses) horses.
The blue in the pictures is somewhat lighter than I have painted them, I have favoured a medium blue for the first coat and a cornflower-medium blue mix for the shading. The figures are from Foundry and are again Copplestone sculpts, like the majority of the Prussians, and are superb.

Please feel free to have a look if you have a minute spare.

Foundry dismounted dragoons (tricky to work with as none of them are standing upright - maybe they have just emerged from the Pub) of Regiments Royal and Apchon, which you have seen mounted recently.
One more post tomorrow of an Austrian Hussar regiment and that will finish off 2016. Roll on 2017.
