ever wondered how really appear an entire Dragoon Regiment on 4 squadrons on battle?
Well here a sort of idea with my SAR Dragoon Regiment of Savoy/Piedmont in front of the castle of Lucento.

They are around 460 papersoldiers. I hope you enjoy the look…

Impressive and a reminder how large formations we freely move about the table really were.

It's impressive when you see it like that.
Myself and a group of friends put on a Napoleanic display at Partizan many years ago with 150 figure infantry battalions, 80 figure cavalry units and artillery at 1:1
It was interesting to see how slow it was manoeuvring troops unless they were just matching forward and the chaos a couple of trees in your line of advance could make.

How long did it take to cut out and mount?

I did during the lockdown. I have a person that cut them: arounf 100 per week; meanwhile I glued them, I prepared the magnet underneath.. so all together around 20/25 days
