Settlers Defending (1)

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.
