Imrie-Risley 54mm F&IW Royal Roussillon Fusilier

Here he is - based on a Warmachine 40mm round base I just picked up from The Game Matrix today.
Highlighting has been added after the Minwax stain. The face was given a little detail work too, but otherwise, this 54mm figure was painted and based pretty much the way I do 28mm figures.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I've had this figure for many years and recently stripped the original paint work (done when I was a kid) and repainted it using the methods I use for 28mm figures now.
The Royal Roussillon Regiment's second battalion participated in most of the major engagements in the French and Indian War. Several other regiments sent their respective second battalions to "New France" for the service during the war.
As you can see the basic load for infantrymen hasn't changed much over the centuries.
