WSS French Dragoons

I am looking at the order of Battle of the Battle of Ramiles which consistently shows French Dragoon regiments to contain 3 squadrons while other line cavalry regiments are limited to 2 squadrons. Were French Dragoons regiments during this era larger than their line cavalry counterparts?

Spanish troops during the War of the Spanish Succession

Does anyone have any idea about the quality of the Spanish Army in comparison to the British or French during this conflict?

Re: What's the correct Red for the Redcoats?

As stated before, there were many variations. Also, before synthetic dies the colors would be more muted than what we say on today. Also, keep in mind that this was before the era of mass production. A uniform taylor had to use what was available. Even within the same regiment a variety of shades of...

Queen Anne's War

I have been gaming WSS in Europe for some time now and am interested in expanding into the Americas but have some questions? Did Queen Anne's War involve skirmishes only or were there some larger battles which would have involved linear tactics? Are there any sources on orders of battle and uniforms...

WSS Dragoons

How common was it for Dragoons to dismount in a battle during the War of the Spanish Succession. I know that at the Schellenberg The Scott's Greys dismounted and at Blenheim French Dragoons dismounted. However, was this done prior to the battle with the horses left behind or were these units capable...

Re: Possible Hussar Models

Check out Front Rank's 7 Years War Austrian Pandours, they are very close and one of them is even holding a severed head. They make a wonderfull contrast with your more civilized line cavalry.

Re: WSS British Cavalry Headgear

Thank you all for the help. I am still tempted to give the Scot's Greys a cloth cap similar to the one they wore later in the century but with a simpler design. Front Rank makes such a figure in their earlier range. I will also add a Horse Grenadier figure to my regular Dragoon units as you suggeste...

WSS British Cavalry Headgear

Front Rank manufactures WSS British Dragoons with fur hats. does anyone know something about which regiments wore them. Someone on the 18th Century board had suggested that it was probably for the Horse Grenadier Company of the Guards or simply the grenadier troop of a Dragoon regiment. Furthermore,...

WSS British Dragoon Headgear

OK, this is probably a childishly easy question for this group. Front Rank produces WSS British Dragoons with two types of headgear, the tricorne and some kind of a fur hat. Was the fur hat worn by specific regiments, elite companies or at a specific time period? I can not find any references. I was...
