Fitzjames Horse?

I blog under the name "Fitzjames Horse". This is a tribute to the Franco-Irish "Wild Geese" Cavalry Regiment. I am involved in a research project on the Wild Geese. And I have a very tenuous family connexion.
The photograph is of a Del Prado Marlborough Cavalryman at Blenheim 1704. I have eighteen of these figures, which I have customised ...horse, colour, hair colour, facial hair, trumpet, standard into a rough approximation (I am not an expert converter) of how Fitzjames Horse would have looked.
