Hello

I would like to have thsi figure identified. Manufacturer,scale (is about a 200MM or a little bit more?) and unit. I know is a British NApoleonic figure now altough it is labeled as a 95th Rifles at Waterloo at the site I bought it


Picture 1 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=310130093810

Picture 2 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=310130093810

Picture 3 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=310130093810[url]


then I noticed that the figure I bought dont appearto have a Baker rifle...then
while researching I found a very similar figure offered by Detara miniatures and is part of a range labeled Bonapartes...they are prefixed as AB as Allan Ball? It is labeled tough as 43rd Monmouthshire Light Infantry

[url]http://www.cantabrianet.com/detara/Bonapertes.htm




which was a red coated unit as seen in this website of re enactment of the 43rd Light Infantry


http://www.43rdbattlegroup.co.uk/site/index.htm


In the de tara website, the similar looking figure pictured there looks as if it s been puttied in its trousers and others areas...to be corrected as to represent the 43rd ?

[

So, it is a 95th Rifles or another light unit? Im doubt ...

Any suggestions as painting, conversions?

Thanks for any help....

quite possibly you have found a RE caster, they modify current products a small amount, and sell the off at a huge profit, funding their crime even more, if you cannot find, the exact kit thats here, anywhere im afraid you have fallen foul to a recaster, and would not reccomend purchasing from them, just to be safe.
