Make Do and Mend

After the relative luxury of painting small units, I now face the daunting challenge of 24 man unit.

Which is a slightly odd thing to say, as my French army was built on 36 man units.

Still I have found a use for the infantry figures in the Perry French Dragoon kit. I noticed in a book I was reading the other day that the Spanish cavalry was so poorly mounted that the cavalry men often fought dismounted. Which is nice as I have enough figures for an infantry battalion and some skirmishing dragoons.

The question then arises as to whether they should be attached to the brigade of infantry regulars, or the cavalry brigade.

But regardless I have placed orders for the figures I need to complete the army.
