CANADIAN MILITIA - FRENCH INDIAN WARS

Continuing with more French forces, these are my Canadian Militia. 




These are actually metal 28 mm Warlord games French Marine figures (Conquest games) which I have modified to convert them into Canadian Militia.
Some of the conversions undertaken were:
  • removal of the hood 
  • shorten the  length of the tunic 
  • filled in the front lower portion of the tunic
  • trimmed off the tail of the cap and scribed in grooves onto the circumference of the cap

Undercoated  with black Primer
Start of the painting process
2 Leaders, I conducted a head swap with the figure on the left with one of the other figures in the pack.

Militia with white tunics.



Militia with light green tunics (base colour for the tunic is Vallejo Green Grey).

Militia with sand coloured tunics (base colour is VMC Green Ochre).
The different coloured tunics and leggings help to designate them as Militia while the same coloured caps helps to link them together as a unit.



Cheers John
