Work wise, I have been redeployed from a Dental Hospital to General Hospital and undergone re-training .
Gaming has been non existent and the planned Early war Big Chain of Command event I hoped to host over 2 days at MOAB this year had to be cancel due to the continuing closures of interstate borders and uncertainty of the impact the virus is creating.
On a positive note, I decided to restart a project that's been on the back burner since May 2017, my 28 mm French Indian War project.
I am working on both figures and terrain simultaneously, here are some Colonial settlers.
The figures are from Perry miniatures AWI range.
Three of the figures are suppose to be black Americans (the man holding the sack and the 2 busy woman) but as I wanted to portray frontier settlers I decided to paint them as white American settlers for this time period in history.
I modified this character by removing his cane and repositioning his arm,my intention is to use him as a Doctor or a Preacher of the good news.
The woman in the center is in her Sunday best, probably on her long trip back to town to attend the Sunday church service, the other woman make for good representations of woman helping to maintain their frontier cabins.
Nice models of two youngsters, all the models are super-glued on a very thin sheets of metal with a thin layer of Milliput applied to the surface to create texture.
I decided to move away from circular bases and use square bases for this project.
Perry miniatures really do make some nice, well proportioned models and it was a pleasure to paint them.
