Colonel Frederick Visscher
Visscher appears in the "British Grenadier!" Oriskany scenario as a brigade commander and this figure is of course a companion to those of Lieutenant-Colonel Ebenezer Cox, Brigadier-General Herkimer and Hanyery Tewahangarahken. It is another one of the figures from Galloping Major's "Anglo-American Militia Command" pack in their F&IW range. As I said in my post on Ebenezer Cox, Visscher should be mounted but (again) I like this pose, which suggests he can hear the ambush has started. Given that he was a prominent, senior officer, I wanted to give Visscher some decent clothes and so he appears in a more colourful suit than I suspect he wore on the day.
