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.
