Hi
I just bought some kallistra miniatures, but I can't find any color photos of the dragoon and artillery uniforms of the belgian army. So I hope someone can help me out?

Thanks. But I dont see any dragoons in these pictures. And only one of the artillery. Could use some more information if any is available?

What dragoons did you have in mind? I don't know of any Belgian dragoon regiments in WW1, at least not named as such.

I had a look at the Kallistra website. The figures look like Chasseurs cheval to me, so check out the 5th set of photos, in the column labelled 'Tenue de campagne 1914'.

Ok thanks. I wasn't able to find any information on dragoons, so I will try and paint them as Chasseurs cheval then.

What about the artillery pieces themselves? Were these painted dark blue or just black?

Thanks Robert. That was just what I needed!
