Tioday we have the indefatigable Dragoons of von Irwing, which fought as part of von Schmettau's 3rd Division at Jena Auerstadt.
Looking at the OOBs for Jena-Auerstadt, there are 2 Dragoon brigades of the same size (3 bases).
One attached to the Advanced Guard Division .. which I have documented HERE. and another one attached to the 3rd Division.
There is Brigade Irwing in the Advanced guard, and then Brigade von Irwing, as part of 3rd Division.
Confused ? So am I ....:)
Best solution is of course, to do BOTH units. Can never have too many units after all, especially some as colourful and tactically useful as Prussian Dragoons.
So here we have the Brigade von Irwing, for your viewing pleasure.
|3 bases of medium cavalry - Dragoons. Figures by AB. This unit is has the distinctive light blue jackets, and dark violet (or purple) facings.|
|Great figures by AB once again. I was not too sure what to do with the saddlecloths on this unit, so I have gone for a matching light blue with purple trim for the whole unit.|
|Missing flag again - another one for the painting queue. Must catch up on the back log of flags for some of these older units. Soon ...|
