|Perry 16th Light Dragoons (unbased) with Fife & Drum British Mounted Officers for comparison. (Double click to enlarge the picture).|
I spent a good part of the weekend painting some of the Perry 16th Light Dragoon figures for my AWI army that I will be taking to conventions. I have posted some pictures of the first six figures that I painted, along with two stands of Fife & Drum British mounted officers. This way one can compare how the two ranges mounted figures compare. The two ranges look to be comparable in height, but the Perry riders are a little chunkier than the Fife & Drum figures. As long as I keep each range in its own distinct unit, the two should look nice together on the table top.
I don't currently have cavalry for either side in the Fife & Drum Miniatures range yet, but plan to add the 16th Light Dragoons and the American 1st Continental Light Dragoons -- these will be next in the queue when my turn in the rotation comes around again.

It looks to me like the two ranges work together nicely. This is good because I can use the Perry cavalry figures until I have my own in the range. I currently have only 9 castings of the 16th L.D, but have enough on order to top the regiment up to 24 figures, or two squadrons at a 1:10 ratio = 240 cavalry.
