Front Rank Marlburians

Well I suppose if one wanted to wargame the North American theatre in the Louis XIV era the best place to start for 28mms might be Front Rank Marlburians - here's a couple of French infantry figs with belly boxes - useful for Compagnies franches de la Marine. Other figures could be brought in from their other ranges, such as the F&I for Natives etc.
Natives have always stripped to breechclout, leggings for battle so any figure so attired would be useful. A lot of figure designers put woodland indians in coats and shirts which is fine for a modelling point of view but it wouldn't be the case in action where a layer of paint and bear grease would be the norm.
