1st Continental Dragoons & British 16th Light Dragoons Have Arrived!

British 16th Light Dragoons skirmishing (L to R): BC-017 Trooper Loading Carbine; BC-016 Trooper Firing Carbine; BC-015 Trooper Firing Pistol; and BC-014 Trooper resting carbine on right thigh. (click to enlarge).

I received the first 16 AWI dragoons yesterday, hot off the spin casting machines at Griffin Moulds. I will be processing Kickstarter rewards first, but after that the figures will be available for purchase by anyone. There are 8 American 1st Continental dragoons and 8 British 16th Light Dragoons.

If you were not a KS backer, you can place a "pre-order" now and I can probably ship your order in about 2-3 weeks (to allow enough time to send out the KS rewards first). No money is needed now, just an indication of your interest in particular figures is all that I need so that I can order more stock.

All figures are $5.00 USD including rider and horse. Shipping charges are at a flat rate of $5.00 USD in the USA and $10.00 USD for the rest of the world. In most cases, the flat rate international shipping equates to a savings of 15% to 20% on your order.

To order, send me an e-mail with your order for individual figures at:


Stock codes for the 16th Light Dragoons are as follows:

BC-010 16th Light Dragoon Officer
BC-011 16th LD Trumpeter
BC-012 16th LD Trooper, shouldered sword, hunting shirt
BC-013 16th LD Trooper, shouldered sword, uniform coat
BC-014 16th LD Trooper, rested carbine on right thigh
BC-015 16th LD Trooper, firing pistol
BC-016 16th LD Trooper, firing carbine
BC-017 16th LD Trooper, loading carbine

If you want to create a regiment in a formal pose with shouldered swords, then use the BC-010 officer, BC-011 trumpeter, and BC-013 trooper in coat to form the core of your regiment. You can also add a figure or two of the BC-014 trooper wearing a hunting shirt. On campaign, there should be some variation in the uniform. The BC-014 trooper with rested musket would also work with the fellows with the shouldered swords.

If you want to add some skirmishers, then the BC-010 officer pointing would look like he is directing a piquet line of the BC-015 firing pistol, BC-016 firing carbine, BC-017 reloading, with a couple of BC-014 rested carbine poses forming your reserve behind the skirmish line.

British 16th Light Dragoons (L to R): BC-012 trooper in coat; BC-013 trooper in hunting shirt; BC-011 Trumpeter; and BC-010 Officer. (click pix to enlarge).


1st Continental Dragoons (L to R): AC-010 Officer; AC-011 Trumpeter; AC-012 Ensign; and AC-013 Trooper with shouldered sword. This group would make up a nice regiment in a "formal" at the ready pose.

1st Continental Dragoon skirmishing (L to R): AC-014 Trooper firing pistol; AC-015 Trooper firing carbine; AC-016 Trooper reloading carbine; and AC-017 Trooper with rested carbine. The first three poses would make a nice skirmish line. Then you could add a couple of the trooper with rested carbine behind the main skirmish line in reserve, and then add the AC-010 officer pointing to direct the skirmish line. 

Stock codes for the 1st Continental Light Dragoons are as follows:

AC-010 1st Continental Dragoon officer
