Here are some shots of my Firing Line Dismounted Dragoons.
Firing Line wasn't around long. The figures were commissioned by Jim Purky, of Fife and Drum and I have no idea if they were sold commercially.
I managed to track the owner of the molds down and he ran the molds for me back some time ago.
The figures came in 4 poses, but with 5 head choices.
The usual cavalry headgear and a tricorn hat.

Firing Line also did mounted poses, which I will attempt to locate and photograph another day.

Here are the Firing Line poses painted as the various Continental Cavalry Units and a SC Militia/State Unit.

I got mine at an HMGS convention MANY years ago.
I got 12 cav who became the Philadelphia Light Horse.
I also was able to pick up 3x12 units of dismounted cavalry.
