Clark's Illinois Regiment, 1782

Here's my latest original. It will be donated to the MMSI figure auction this October. It was inspired by Don Troiani's study.

I tried to come up with an original pose too. As you can see, cleaning one's pipe dosn't exactly make a figure "pop". But it's one that was common while in camp, or at rest during a march. And I don't believe I've seen one like it in figure form.

These men where issued with French made royal blue coats (it's much darker in person) and carried Spanish made muskets.

The head is from Hornet and the Musket is a Shenandoah conversion.
