One benefit of the dragoon debacle is that I've solved the niggling problem of the bugler with the physically impossible helmet crest; I've replace his head with one of the custom-conversion heads as if he's lost his helmet mid-charge!
As I now have a few French dragoons without heads and more custom-conversion heads in bicornes, I've decided to combine them to create (wait for it...) Spanish cavalry! Yes, I know I cursed my Spaniards in my last AAR, but I do have a soft spot for them and their peacock plumage. I've had a hankering for some canary-yellow clad cavalry, if only to give the opposition something to laugh at!
