Mustering of Colonel Homburgs Dragoons

"Well Colonel, what do you think of your unit?"

"A fine body, I must thank you Baron, and the Stadtrat, for providing me with such a well turned out unit."

"You realise that we had to cut a few corners to raise them in time"

"Yes, but you have not stinted in the things that mattered, disciplined troopers and excellent horseflesh"

"I trust you'll remember our little arrangement"

"Certainly Baron, I would have agreed to the arrangement without your offer of a generous discount on the raising fee for the regiment, but I now feel obliged to make any additional effort required"

Impressive looking unit. The yellow ocher uniforms with the black facings look very martial.

Nice work on the cavalry and the buildings!

Ah, yes. The "butter and black" of these dragoons is somewhat like what I plan for my own Saxe-Bearstein Dragoons . . . although I plan to use more of a "yellow/tan leather" look . . . they will be very distinctive on the battlefield and hopefully very distinguished as well.

I like them.

I also wondered about those buildings ... scratch built or paint on vendor supplied blocks?

The buildings are all home made. More details can be found on my main blog here
