The Bavarian cavalry adds contrast for color compared to the sky blue coats of the infantry. The Bavarian Cuirassier regiments wore the lobster tail helmet and front and back cuirass. Though an anachronistic look it may have been useful in the campaigns against the Ottoman Empire. Uniform details are from Charles S. Grant's From Shot to Pike.

Nice looking dragoons in the foreground supported by the "lobsters." Good work. Do you find the thicker bases useful?
I've mounted mine on much thinner word or metal.

The thicker bases I found useful for VnB as it allowed me to put the unit identification on the back since the scale VnB uses are regiments and brigades (especially those big battles!) The rest of my collection are on thin bases.

Everything else:

Makes sense. I love your Indian lancers and mascot!
