Monrovian Army: Cavalry - Kurassiers and Dragoons
Onto the cavalry, four regiments upgraded with new flags; a little touch-in also needed for some figures. These were already painted as Hesse-Kassel units. By the time of the SYW the Kurassiers no longer wore the cuirass .
First heavy cavalry brigade
K2 Leib-Regiment (at the back)
brigade of Dragoons
D6 Prinz Friedrich-Dragoner (at the back)
I have two regiments of cavalry to re-paint as Kuriassier and a new regiment to paint as the Garde De Corps .
A blog documenting the encounters between the armies of the imaginary nations of the Kingdom of Wittenberg and its neighbours (including the Kingdom of Monrovia and their allies). My inspiration being drawn from 'Charge or How to Play Wargames' by Young & Lawford and 'The Wargame' by Charles Grant.
I have a number of other period interests for wargaming (from ancients to WW2), these have their own blogs, see below.
