Perry Dragoons, box 2

Two weeks ago I picked up a second box of Perry dragoons.  This is a great kit full of nice models.  You get 13 mounted, 8 dismounted PLUS six casualty figures.  They assemble easily and the quality of the figures make them a joy to paint.  I just have to base the dismounted dragoons and then I'll be finished with the project.  My 28mm collection is becoming quite formidable.  I think I have over 500 figures, including cavalry, infantry and artillery.  They are solely for viewing pleasure at this point, but one day soon I hope to get them on a table and see what it is like playing a game with them.

Warlord Games Napoleonic Portugese

I purchased a couple of boxes of Warlord Games Portugese to give myself a project to paint.  The models were easy to assemble and the detail was good.  All of the line companies are in marching poses, but there is a nice variety to give the 24 man unit a nice appearance on the table.  They painted up easily.  Here is the first regiment that I completed this week, the 18th Regiment.  I should finish the 12th Regiment over the Labor Day Weekend.
Each box comes with equipment for four grenadiers.

The command figures are all made of metal.

All in all, a nice addition to my Peninsular collection.
