17th Light Dragoons
The 17th Light Dragoons, as I think they would have appeared early in the AWI. Though for the life of me I can't remember why I painted some with buff and some with white breeches. I don't have any mounted British painted yet, but these still cut an imposing figure even dismounted, with their distinctive skull and crossed bones helmets. As I recall I used the figure in the Osprey Boston campaign book as a guide. The figures on the flanks here are definitely Dixon, and I think the middle stand looks like Front Rank. A slight size difference, as you can see, but not enough to worry about, in my opinion.
