The Mohawks Have Landed

Alright, I started reading about the French and Indian War recently. As a change from 6mm, I choose FIW skirmish as a little break, and I like what I see so far. I had asked around and was recomended Conquest Miniatures for my Native Americans, but was unhappy with the level of info they had for painting them. I had all the relavant Osprey titles and some Troiani plates from the AWI, but I wanted more info. In the search, I came across the Galloping Major Wargames figures. It was pretty much love at first sight. I really liked the look of the Indians and was sold. I put in the list of figures for Chrismas to the wife, but couldn’t wait and ordered a small sample to tide me over while they arrived.

When they showed up, I wasn’t disappointed. I quickly picked out my least favorite of the poses to practice on (a hard choice as they all were good) and got to work. Some posts on message boards and some contact with the owner/sculptor of Galloping Major and I had a good idea of where to start. There is some amazing examples of painted figures on his site and I was particularly taken with the following one.

So I set out to recreate it. Let me know what you think.
