Bloody Ban

As Banastre Tarleton had his intended "shaking of hands" with Lauzun and his legion in the Battle of the Hook, I decided that I had to encorporate his British Legion cavalry into my troops next. So I bought the required quantity of figures from Perry miniatures. At first I was a bit disappointed that the excellent figures lacked some details. The feather in Ban's cap I created with Milliput, and the carbines I got from Front Rank. Later I was informed by Alan Perry that the British Legion dragoons were not equipped with carbines. Too late! Mine were already furnished with carbines. As I knew some other British Legion cavalry figures with these weapons I decided not t alter them. So they ride as fully equipped dragoons.
