Wonderfully rendered! Given that distinctive headgear, though, I think what you may have are Horse Grenadiers (Maison du Roi) as opposed to dragoons (although I've not seen the French horse grenadier headgear with the button on the front, so could be mistaken):

Ed M,

Thanks for the link, now I need to buy another box of cavalry, those are some amazing uniforms on those lads!

Hi Anton,

Yes, indeed, the French Maison Du Roi Horse Grenadiers are a MUST HAVE! They have that distinctive headgear up until 1765, after which they went over to the bearskin (I much prefer the earlier headgear!). The below is from Mouillard's Regiments of Louis XV:

Oh My Yes!

They are an absolute must-have!
