Dragoons and Standards

This week we have the Ballyfoole Dragoons, commanded by Col. Seamus O'Malley the elder, father of the younger Seamus O'Malley currently serving with the Frundsberg Freihusaren (see Frundsberg Frei Stadt for more on that).
These are Foundry figures. I thought the guy with the helmet was quite fitting for a Celtic unit, probably some family heirloom. I added the "pistol" (or carbine?) to the officer on the left of the picture), just to "spice" things up a bit more. It's from a sprue of pistols that came with the old GW Long Drong dwarf pirates "regiment".

Meanwhile, somewhere in the wilds of the North-by-Northwest Frontier...
More Foundry figures.

Nice! :-)

If you'd like a shaded version of your cavalry standard, send me a copy in whatever format and I'll replicate it for you, shading and all.

I love the flag and it's superb message-inspired idea!

Yes, I like the flag too (I had noticed it in one of your previous posts -- but not commented).

Nice Dragoons; and a very nice standard.

Great figs, as always! Did you design the flags yourself? They're both really topnotch, just like paint job on the minis.

Fitz-Badger said...

Yep, the flags are my designs. :)

I don't paint big battalions, but I have my standards... ;)

David, I really appreciate the offer but I don't want to put you to any trouble. I probably wouldn't make good use of it as once I've successfully attached a flag (which I often have difficulty getting clean and wrinkle-free) I like to leave well enough alone. I do appreciate the offer though. Thanks!

Hi FB,

Righty ho. Any time you'd like a flag shaded *before* you attach it, let me know! :-)
