    This excellent figure from Castle miniatures.
    1st battalion, 3rd Guards at the battle of Talavera, 1808.
    The figure goes together with no problems but I did manage to break the sling swivel at the front end. I added a new stopper to the canteen and string retainer also. I could not find any info on the knapsack wether or not to add a badge so I left in plain.
    Painted with acrylic and inks.

    Thank you Steve, really appreciate the comment, 75s seem to be small enough for me, these have great detail.
