40mm SYW Austrians: Kolowrat-Krakowski Dragoons

The Austrian cavalry is finished for my 40mm army. Here is a new regiment of Dragoons (6 squ) plus their elite company of Horse Grenadiers. This regiment, according to Kronoskaf, used two-tone blue – dark blue on the shabraque (horse furniture) and a medium blue for the coats. It's actually the same blue I will use for Prussian dragoon coats.

So my Austrians have 28.5 squadrons of cavalry, a strange number but that's because 3 companies of Horse Grenadiers makes one and a half squadrons. Plus 6 squadrons of Cuirassiers, 18 squadrons of Dragoons and 3 squadrons of Hussars. That's 90 cavalry figures in 40mm. Next to paint will be a 12pdr battery.
