Languedoc Dragons

French SYW dismounted dragoons by Foundry. Horrible figures (cartoon faces and hands, strange body tilt)
as is often the case in the later Foundry ranges but, if you want dismounted dragoons, there are not many options available. Nonetheless they look half-decent when painted up and are quite useful in a French army of the period as dragoons were often found without their horses. Besides being useful because they were trained to have a role 'on foot', they were often dismounted so as to give their horses up to their more distinguished cavalry brothers.
