Galloping Major redcoats

Three men of the 60th Foot firing - no lace on the coats and I've sculpted them without swords. They could also be painted as soldiers of H.M. Independent Companies of Foot or other line regiments with lace removed.
Watch out for notifications for planned launch of British regulars for the 7 Years War & French & Indian War.
