Re-based AWI dragoons

I couldn't face the prime red figures I have so I decided to bite the bullet and start rebasing some of my older 1/72-scale stuff onto washers. I started with the AWI.

These six guys are American dragoons. I used a slightly bigger washer the normal to get each fellow onto a base with his horse. The horse wouldn't be brought forward into combat but, without the horse, it is hard to tell the dragoons from the rest of the militia.

Up next: I have the rest of the rebels drying: some 57 foot men, four command bases, four cannon and 8 crew. The Indians are off their old bases and onto new ones while the British look on with envy.

Thanks Phil. A fun mini diorama feel.
