I thought about converting them to Saxon Chevaulegers. We need a shako (Esci kneeling French line), the labels can be painted over and the Pallasch converted to a sabre with some hot water. The boots cut off a little bit on the top to make trousers.
Uwe - I think Strelets have missed an opportunity with the Russian Dragoons. I will not buy another set in the Big Box format as I can get the french cuirassiers in other sets now, so until they consider releasing the dragoons (or another type) then my armies will have to be made up of the rather dated HaT set. Which is pure lost sales from my perspective, so I really hope Strelets know what they are doing.
