COLONIAL SETTLERS 28mm

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. 
cheers John

  3. Nice work. Like you I have FIW as a 'to do' project. I have Muskets and Tomohawks but was also thinking Sharp Practice 2. So many figures, such little time!

  4. Lovely work John. I recently painted some Partisans and agree it makes a nice change painting different colours, and painting a group where every figure is dressed differently!

    I really must prod someone down at the club and get some more M&T games in...
