3 Little Indians!

 3 More Indians for the French Indian wars setting. Again from  Redoubt Enterprises (LINK) and retailing at 6 figures for £7.50 which I think is a bargain I really do. They are metal and not plastic and a little on the chunky side. Which I do not mind although it does give them a well fed look which historically they may not have had. That is my only quibble with the figures and for the price I am more than happy to forget all about it! Other than the musket they are all armed with melee weapons and one hopes they will scare the living daylights out of their table-top enemies.

I did do a very little research about the war paint and then decided to do my own thing. While there is much to commend doing it accurately and authentically these are not destined for a museum but for a wargames table so the feel was to me more important than the reality. Likewise the decorations on things like the war club are hardly authentic but it feels right to me and only experts on the period and people who read this blog will know it's all made up. There is  perhaps another reason why it is made up as I do also see a fantasy game in their future.

Thanks for looking today and with luck I should have some WW1 figures done for Matt on Friday. So now you know What I am painting later today. All the best to you cheers Clint.

    1. Thanks Roy. It was not until he was finished that I realised that he looked like an England supporter!

    2. You should give the figure a positive dice-roll bonus when attacking enemies of the crown - Of course, if he should be attacking the Brits then at all costs he should be targeted as a priority to capture and be hanged for treason :)

  4. My first thought was that we've been robbed! Where's the other seven?
    As for the figures themselves, the ski-tones are particularly good and I like the dynamic poses - PM's (Paleface Monkey? done a great job on these.

    1. Cheers Dean. I never really painted any redoubt figures until this year and I feel I have had years missing out!

    1. Thanks Bob. I am toying with the Idea of Lewis and Clarke finding a "Lost World" with Mammoths and cave bears and the like! Muskets against Sabretooth's! Just a thought at this stage.
