|16th Light Dragoons (L-R): BC-016 firing carbine; and BC-017 loading carbine. (Click pix to enlarge)|
Here are a couple of pictures of two of the new Fife & Drum AWI British 16th Light Dragoons that I painted this evening (Sunday night). These are just two of the eight poses that we have for the 16th Light Dragoons. I really like their "Tarleton" style leather helmet and I could even see using these in my Hesse Seewald fictional army too.
I will paint the other six poses of the 16th Light Dragoons this week and then tackle the 1st Continental Dragoons.
Below is a reverse view of the fellow firing his carbine:

So look below for a comparison photo of two figures, same pose, from each range and judge for yourself.
|Comparison of Perry versus Fife & Drum - similar posed figures.|
I think that both ranges could easily be used on the same tabletop. You probably would not want to mix figures into one unit, but keep them in their own discrete units and the two ranges should look just fine together.

Right now I am imagining a whole regiment of about 16 of the 16th Light Dragoons and thinking how absolutely awesome that wargame regiment would look. I can't wait to paint more.
