American War of Independence: 3rd Continental Light Dragoons (Washington's Horse)

Despite the nice weather I have been cracking on painting up bits of 'Lead Mountain' over the weekend, the latest unit off the painting bench being six U.S. 3rd Continental Light Dragoons (Washington's Horse), who fought at the Battles of Cowpens, Guildford Courthouse and Eutaw Springs, for my Rebels and Patriots army.

As with the vast majority of my Patriot army, these models are from Perry Miniatures, part of their metal range.

Once again I have used Army Painter dip and then some highlights over the top on lighter parts like the tunics and facings which gives them a grubby campaign look to their normally bright uniforms.
