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


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


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.
