    I've been so busy renovating the kitchen this past month that I've barely had any time for hobbies. So I was especially happy to put the final few touches on this FeR offering the other day. It's the first one of my World Expo souvenirs, and I hope to get a start on the others soon. Now, on to the tile back splash......

    I once found a Historex infantryman huddled in the fridge ! Best have a quick check while you're about it, eh ?

    Beautiful paint job Glenn and I love the groundwork. Especially the moss covered tree branch. I'll have to remember that look for some of my future figures.

    Well done,

    Thanks guys, glad you like it. Ken, the moss was applied using some thinned out white glue and some model railroad "turf". Really easy to do and should be readily available at any shop that caters to the model railroad crowd.

    You'll have to check out the AWI figure line from FeR. Some really top drawer stuff.

    Love this figure from FeR.
    Superb painting and ground work. I have also pinched the idea with the moss.

    Very nicely done, but surely not Light Infantry , but Light Cavalry ? Boots and a trumpet suggest a mounted soldier.

    I think you are correct Tony. From the uniform and helmet it looks to be a trumpeter of the 3rd Continental Light Dragoons or Baylor's Horse. They wore white coats with blue facings, and with the usual reversed colours for trumpeters they would be blue coats with white facings.

    I just realized I mislabeled my original post! Of course this is a member of the Continental Light Dragoons, not infantry. It even says so on the box it came in! Well, that's on me.
