Work on the Minifigs French Dragoons progresses. The bases have been carefully cleaned up as far as possible - luckily the filler used was very thinly spread - and I have taken the opportunity to get he figures on their new bases. These will give me something to handle them by whilst I am painting them.
As well as replacing the green I also intend freshening up the black and white areas. The metals appear to be OK for the most part so will need little work.
It is funny that even something as simple as placing these venerable warriors on new bases seems to have given them a renewed sense of purpose. I hope that my efforts will do them justice!
