Off the beaten track

Last year at CRISIS in Antwerp I got a 28mm miniature by Paul Hicks as a gift. It represents Messire Joseph de Séguiran, Marquis de Bouc, colonel-lieutenant of the Régiment de Maine, who was killed at the battle of Eekeren (also spelled Ekeren or Eeckeren) in 1703.
Well this is not actually my period, but I liked the beautifully sculpted figure so much that I painted it. Now here it is, the officer wearing the uniform of his regiment. Whether this is correct I do not know. It was some work to find out how the regiment was clad, anyhow!

That is a very nice figure.
