From JuanM: A Roger's Ranger from the French and Indian War (5 points)


Juan has come in with another great entry, focusing again on the French and Indian War, with a soldier from the famous Roger's Rangers who were an independent Colonial militia unit in British service.


This is a 28mm casting from Galloping Major Wargames. Juan is 'auditioning' this line along with Conquest to see which he wants to concentrate on for his upcoming project. 


I quite like this fellow's lugubrious face - very characterful.

As a alternative suggestion, for a completely different style, Juan, you may want to check out Tom Meirer's Thunderbolt Mountain range of 1/48 scale castings. Its a very small range, but the sculpts are very beautiful and sinewy - I have a few and can attest to their quality. They might be nice just as stand-alone presentation figures.

Juan has been splitting time between this project and painting Sci-Fi stuff (heaven forbid) but says he has to start picking up the pace. This lad gives Juan another 5 points to his roster. Well don, Juan!
