Since viewing the movie "The Last of the Mohicans" many, many years ago, I have been interested in wargaming this period. Thanks to Andy's posts on his Blog and viewing Athilith's videos, reviewing the rule book "Muskets and Tomahawks"
I got hooked, I am slowing building up my figures but will not start playing the rule set mentioned above as I am currently committed to finishing the WW 2 projects I have started.
These figures are Colonial settlers, 28mm metal figures from Warlord games, I purchased them in the same order with a couple of packs of Late War German Infantry. I am currently waiting for another order of Armed Colonial settlers to arrive.
I must admit, I really enjoyed painting these figures, it was a big change painting with bright
colours as opposed to the dark colours of World War 2 figures.The colour scheme of the figures are based on the pictures on the Warload games site.
Many bloggers have mentioned that they prefer painting Metal as opposed to Plastic figures, I did not understand why, till I painted these figures and I must agree there is a difference, the detail is more crisp and well defined.
