I did not find any plains Indians on foot, although I did find some on horses. I did find a few Apache Indians. As you can see they are all rifle armed but a couple also carry pistols in holsters as well. The rifles are a mixture of Winchesters carbines and breach loading rifles, I like the mixture on these irregular foot.There are a couple of knife sheaths as well, but I am surprised that not every figure carries one. I would imagine that a knife might be more use in day to day activities than a long arm or pistol, but there's not a huge amount I can do about that with regard to these figures. If I could sculpt (I can't very well) I would have added some more knives. It's probably just the selection of figures in this batch. I have deliberately added some bright colours to their clothes as I did not want them to look all the same or in some kind of uniform. They have been quite a tonic and have shaken of some of my painting lethargy which was the reason for selecting something a little different. As such I have undercoated 4 more and will start them this afternoon.
All the components for the 1/2400th scale fishing village have now arrived (on Thursday) so I should be able to proceed on that project in this coming week. Should it turn out how I anticipate I can see everything being finished for the Broadside show game in 2 weeks time.
That's it for now, have a good Easter Break and I'll do my next blog post on Sunday. All the best Clint.
