I am happy to announce that the Kickstarter Project for the AWI American and British light dragoons surpassed its initial funding goal of $5,000 on the first day of its posting. That means that we can start on our first batch of dragoons very soon. We contemplate adding the British 16th Light Dragoons and the 1st Continental Light Dragoons first. As more funding comes in we can also add the 17th Light Dragoons for the British army (including some in smocks for the Southern Campaigns) and the 3rd Continental Light Dragoons to the Fife & Drum range of AWI figures.
So what is next?
If we can hit our Stretch Goal of $8,000, then this will unlock Tarleton's British Legion cavalry and some mounted South Carolina partisans for Pickens and Marion's forces of raiders. The British Legion will have some very dynamic poses as befits their nature to charge any enemy in sight. As of today we are approximately $1,115 away from hitting our second stretch goal. If you have an interest in any of these figures, then I would encourage you to visit our Kickstarter page and make your pledge
