US Light Dragoons (Old Glory pack WAA014)
Over the last week I finished off the 2nd unit for my new Old Glory 1812 Armies. I intend to build my units around the battle of Crysler’s Farm. The flag is speculative and is a reduced sized infantry flag.
Nice figures although the officer may be considered a little too enthusiastic waving sword in one hand and helmet in other. Maybe a past relative of Rooster Cogburn!
In the Rules, KGCAWO they will have the following unit characteristics for Crysler’s Farm scenario. 2nd US Light Dragoon D/C/C Carbine. Only one troop, so starts game with 1 Strength point.
Uniform Details There are a number of variations shown but I have opted for the most common version.
Helmet – Black casket style helmet with white horse hair crest with a white over light blue plume and silver plate.
Jacket – French blue with collar, cuffs and turnbacks also French blue. Black braiding on the front. Trousers – white or buff
Boots – Knee high and black
Belt – white with brass buckle
Gloves – white and/or buff Waterbottle – standard issue skyblue/blue grey
Saddlecloth Blue edged white for the men and silver for the officer.
