Specifically, the 17th Light Dragoons served in North America during the American Revolution. After many years, I found a box of these figures in Japan. I have painted them and used them on several different occasions as shown in previous posts.

No smorking?

Ah yes, once again, we see Japanese attempting to use English, but failing to do a spell check!

Ian places third in Funabashi Spring Karate tournament, 2013

He was pretty suprised as he thought he didn't do so well. He placed third in his Kata age group (funny thing was, all three participants were from his dojo) but in sparing, he placed third, which really suprised him as his second fight was a long drawn out match, about 3 minutes. Proud of my little guy either way. Leena was a good sport too as she never fussed at all during the whole 5 hours we were there.

Guilford Courthouse, 1781

For my last battle during my holidays, was this Southern Campaign battle. This battle was refought by myself on April 10, 2013. For the scenario, I used the www.juniorgeneral.org rules, with some modifications from Gentlemen of France Fire First (GOFF).

Our Napoleonics figures

As with my other post today, I am putting up about the figures we have in our collection.

This version is of our 1800-1815 period. Most of these figures were bought in Halifax, Nova Scotia between 1975-1999, 2003-04 and a few have been bought here in Japan since 2008.
