Hers the Dismounted French Dragoons for Egypt. Napoleon took 5 regiments to Egypt but many horses died enroute and few were available once there so many Dragoons were forced to fight as infantry. I used Ab miniatures for them although Fighting 15 make them I chose the AB because of easier fitting to the stand size I use.

Viking Forge makes dismounted dragoons in gaiters. Usually used in 1806. Some of the very best figures around.

If you could post pictures of all these units, even a group shot, that would be great. The balloon section for me would have to be a must see.
Thanks for sharing this project.
