Hmmm. Sounds like a character from one of those 1960's Japanese TV series -- Anyone remember Johnny Sokko and his giant robot or Ultra Man and the Science Patrol?
Anyway, here's a shot of the dragoons' colonel -- Colonel Von Cranz. Really no reason for this picture other than just me goofing around with the macro setting, to see how close I can get to the figure before it goes out of focus. Still, I think our colonel will make a rather dashing fellow when his paint job is complete. Let's hope he doesn't share the same fate as Captain Norris on the field at Balaklava!
