Victrix NAPOLEONIC FRENCH DRAGOONS 1807-1812 Set includes twelve highly detailed figures. These dragoons have been done in the pre-Bardin regulation uniform which has the long-tailed coat. This was supposed to have been replaced by the short-tailed jacket in 1812 but many continued to wear the long tails well into 1813. These miniatures can easily be used for the invasion of Russia in 1812 and the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. The box contains: twelve figures (including an officer, musician and sapper), three main frames, and one command frame. Multiple head variations (giving the option between line or elite companies). Unpainted. Assembly and painting required. $44.00 USD
