These guys are the first of my Anglo American Settlers from Galloping Major Wargames. There is another pack on my painting table as I write this. This group is all in shirt sleeves with a mottly looking assortment of equipment.
The vast majority of the encounters in the FIW were border skirmishes between Indians and settlers. The natives tended to head south, get close to a settlement and lay in wait. Before the sun came up, they pounced on the isolated cabins, stole who and what they could, fired the rest and headed for home.
I live about 30 miles from the dreaded Missisquoi Abenaki settlement that was a major staging point for Indian raids. So these lads might have been my neighbors in a different life.
I think these figures fill a great place in games scenarios. There’s another pack available that I’ve already mentioned and some concept sketches for a third pack on the Galloping Major’s Blog. I look forward to seeing all of them on the table lending support to the Rangers and Regulars or defending some log cabins.
Here are the close-ups.
