Anyway here he is:

The body is hand painted and the rifle is a modified brickarms rifle.

I've heard of those sneaky elite infantry units, and I know how they look like and this is a perfect copy! If that torso really is hand-painted, he has done an amazing job!
The rifle looks awesome as well. But I miss some epaulettes here, the original units had white epaulettes.

Very fine adaptation of a riflemen. The amazing is that Jasbrick is doing all that with painting (also the torso I think).

This is a wonderful custom!

I like the shako!

Torso and rifle look awesome too.

How did you paint that torso so well?

Great Riflemen
Here's forty shillings on the drum
For those who'll volunteer to come
To 'list and fight the foe today.
Over the hills and far away.

O'er the hills and o'er the main.
Through Flanders, Portugal and Spain.
King George commands and we obey.
Over the hills and far away.

When duty calls me I must go
To stand and face another foe.
But part of me will always stray
Over the hills and far away.

Brilliant Creation!

God save the gracious King,
Long live the noble King,
God save the King:
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the King.

That song makes me think of the movie "The Patriot." Awesome movie.

Yes, But that songs about the British pride rather than us fighting America, then backing out which isnt losing.  :pir_laugh2:

But yes, That song is brilliant. The British Grenadiers is quite a good tune too.

I was a BIG fan of Sharpe's when I was a kid. Any chance you could make one for me? I'd love to have one just "because". What would it cost?

Sorry guys... I normally respond to comments, I just did not realise that this was here as well.  I am very pleased that you like him, he is one of a series I created to simulate various historical military units.  I may produce a few others in this era.

Thanks... yes it is all painted.  Am I right in thinking that painting is generally considered a bad thing?

Anyway thanks everyone for the comments.

That doesn't matter to me since only the result counts and that's very impressive. Maybe you can give us one detailed shot of the rifle?

For guys interested in riflemen, here's a torso Mosana did some time ago:
