Help by finding a 28mm miniature
« on: April 16, 2023, 09:26:28 PM »
Hello,
I am trying to make a regiment of Dutch Dragoons 1866 (I have added a picture of those) but I cannot find a good figure.
Does anyone has any idea if this kind of miniature is available

thanks

I'm not aware of any Dutch miniatures for this period, but his uniform is similar to French hussars of the same era, albeit with a shako which is a bit higher than the kept which they wore on campaign and perhaps a bit lower than their own shako. It's more like that worn by the Chasseurs d'Afrique, but their unform doesn't have the frogging.

Neither has the plume of course.

I think your best bet would be French hussars from the Franco Prussian War range by the Perry's. Perhaps building up the Kepi a little with some miliput and adding a plume.
