Hello Clive

This is a great site !

I am still struggling to tell if i have this figure or the similar

Any tips would be appreciated

Later I hope I might be able to have front and back pictures for some figures - this would certainly help in this case.

The two best ways to tell the fusilier and guards figures apart:

the guards wear breeches and long gaiters while the fusiliers have long trousers

if you look at the equipment carried on their backs, the fusiliers have full packs while the guards have rolled greatcoats carried diagonally only.

Hope this does the trick

Thanks Clive.

Gaurdsman it is.
