You can see here the masters of my first French regular infantry figures, a much needed addition to my War-of-the-Austrian-Succession range. These French line infantry fusiliers (equivalent to British musketeers), come in the following poses: Standing, holding musket at ready. Standing, firing musket. Standing, thrusting bayonet. Standing, charging bayonet breast-high. Standing, thrusting bayonet shoulder-high. Kneeling, [...]

I am soon to release my first mid 18th-Century regular infantry figures. Needing some proper foes for my Indians and Canadians, my first regulars will of course have to be British.
