You don't need much cavalry for the AWI. One of the features of the period is that there are a lot of units which appear in the scenarios, but (by and large) do so only once or twice. This is particularly true of American and Loyalist cavalry. On the Patriot side, the 3rd Continental Dragoons top the list with 6 appearances (with a top strength of 8 figures), while Lee's Legion appear in 5 scenarios (with a top strength of 10). Other units have fleeting appearances, and a "southern militia" unit of 8 figures will get you through most other scenarios. But the Eureka range, with its separate hat system and its mix of figures of uniform coats and hunting shirts, can be used to model all those small units of state and militia cavalry that appear in the scenarios. This is what I've been trying to do over the past couple of years, and have painted up some figures as Loyalists as well. So here's a chance to see them all out in the open - the individual unit entries are on the Eureka label. I bought all these figures in two batches, the first in Australia back in 2011, the second at Salute a couple of years later. I always felt guilty that having raved about these figures when first released, I then didn't really paint them as quickly as I might have done (I had over 50 of them, which seemed quite daunting). But now they are all finished and I need to buy some more to finish off Pulaski's Legion and more southern militia. I love these figures and can't recommend them too highly.

South Carolina militia/dragoons
Some of the Loyalists - the East Florida Rangers
A trio of hand-made flags. Dabney's Virginians, on the left, will be in a future post.
They mix fine with Perry/Foundry figures
