I have a set of 9 AWI dragoons that look just like these:

Mine came with many pounds of unidentified lead in flea market acquisitions, so I have no idea who made them. I'd like to add a few more to make a full unit. Does anyone recognize them?

FreiKorps perhaps?

Freikorps was my first thought, Old Glory 15s was my second. I don't see anything in either range that looks like these.

I can't find any pictures of minifigs or Musket Miniatures, which are my next best guesses. I can't find pictures of Irregular's F&IW/AWI figures either, but all the cavalry is described as "charging", and this is not a charging pose.

Lancashire games Pulaski legion cavalry perhaps?

The stand leading looks like the 1st Continental Light Dragoons, in my favorite of its many uniforms, Brown with green facings. The others are just trying to look different with different facings.
If you figure out who did the figures and get more, do green facings.

Mine, Mine, all mine! I just re-molded them last month.

Excellent! A definitive answer!

Which pack are these? I see four choices:

    ARV70 American Dragoons
    ARV71 Armand's Legion Dragoons
    ARV72 British Dragoons
    ARV73 British Legion Dragoons

They aren't British Legion with those helmets.

Dave, It is great to see a manufacturer immediately pop up and id his figures. Not my period or scale, but still vry good response.
