The Three Musketeers
For my fellow history geeks, General Vyse and Colonel Ross.
Sharpshooter Jones- An American sent for by the English Parliment. He is supposedly the best sharpshooter in the New World. He wears the uniform of a lieutenant in the US Army, 1808. He carries the most deadly weapon ever made in the Americas: The Kentucky Flintlock. This rifled, extended version, equipped with a brass sighting tube, can accurately fire a ball at a range of 400 yards.
Sharpshooter Vyse- As the best marksman in the 95th Rifles Regiment, Vyse was called up by Parliment to join the elite trio they were putting together. He wears the rank of General, which he earned through his excellent shooting in the heat of battle. His weapon is the most deadly ever created by the British: The Baker rifle. The usual design is only about three and a half feet long, but this personal weapon comissioned for Vyse's specific use is nearly double that. The barrel is tarnished to better conceal his position.
Sharpshooter Ross- Ross prides himself as being the best shot in the King's 25th Foot. He wears the gorget of Colonel. What makes his skills so outstanding is his ability to achieve impossible shots with a mere brass sighting tube. His Brown Bess musket is otherwise unaltered. At his hip is his favorite weappon... the heavy saber known as the Highlander. Crafted by the Scotts, it is a blade sure to hack anything to pieces.
Hope you lads and lasses like this!
