Seven Years War Range

I have held off adding the Seven Years War range as I had a very incomplete set of figures or pictures for it. However, John has recently sent me some more figures to identify so I felt that now there might be enough to make it worthwhile posting them.

There is a big "however", however: this isn't a range I ever collected so a number of identifications are tentative (where legible code numbers are not available under the bases).

There is also the possibility of confusing some figures with those from the American War of Independence, Jacobite Rising, and also maybe even Marlburian ranges. The following two posts contain some figures where confirmation or identification would be very helpful - you can do this by commenting on the post concerned.

In addition, if anyone has figures from this range which are not pictures and can supply photographs, I would be very glad to hear from you.

I read your blog with interest. The more I look at it, the more I think the figure you suspect is a Russian Pandour is in fact French Light Infantry. I believe I have some somewhere, unless I have already sold them. I think the Russian figure doesn't have the tail on the hat. Probably more confusing than help - sorry.

Thanks Jim I think you are probably right
