Imrie-Risley 54mm F&IW Royal Roussillon Fusilier - WIP

Here's another old figure that I've had for decades that is in the process of being re-painted. It is a 54mm metal figure that I originally painted back in the 1970's as a youngster. Here it is with a wash of Minwax Tudor Satin stain.
He's a fusilier from the Royal Roussillon Regiment that was heavily involved in the French and Indian War, including the Siege of Fort Ticonderoga in 1758. The unit won honors at this battle; which the French call the Battle of Carillon.

Here's the figure with a block paint job prior to the wash.
I'm now thinking of getting some excellently sculpted figures from 28mm Conquest Miniatures.
