"To strengthen the defenses against the onslaughts of the "barbarian" Indians (Comanches and to a lesser extent Apaches) were created in the province of Nueva Vizcaya of the Viceroyalty of New Spain a new Provincial Militia Corps. Given the extension of the territory to be protected and the length of a diffuse and highly permeable border, it was decided that these forces should be formed by Dragons, which at a greater speed of march than the infantry combined their efficiency.

It would be an interesting project to try to find that figure in 28mm.
You need a dragon rider, but without turn backs. Maybe there's a Perry or Eureka figure like that. Militia maybe? Failing that, get a rider whose turnbacks can be filed down.
Then I would use a Kings Mountain head that has a slouch hat with brim turned up on that side, plume of course.
This plus the Hussars that Winston Smith mentioned a few months ago makes doing Mexico vs Comanches very tempting. The people now producing Scruby do AWI Spanish.
Warlord has a nice large range of mounted Comanches, the old Conquest line.

Additionally, the Dayton Painting Consortium, producers of the RSM-95 figure line, have 28mm 18th Century Spanish.
