Today we look at the Cavalry Brigade Henkel, comprising of the most rightly famed Krafft Dragoons, which fought with Grawert's 1st Division, as part of Hohenlohe's Southern Army Group at Jena, 1806.

|The animation on these troops is rather superb I think, well worth a little extra effort on the paint job !
|The bugler, I have reversed colours on him - I think that one is actually accurate for a change, and bold yellow chevrons the length of the sleeve. (or gold lace perhaps ?)
For example, here are some plates from the excellent http://www.kronoskaf.com site :

And a fine selection of SYW flags for various Dragoon regiments .. if I cant find a decent match for the Krafft Dragoons, I may put togther something similar to one of these instead :
