The First French Regulars for the FIW

I’ve just finished up my first French regulars for FIW gaming.  I have been wanting to game the Battle on Snowshoes for quite some time and many of the combatants are regulars.  The main impediment to me was that fact that Galloping Major didn’t make the figures.  After waiting an acceptable amount of time, I […]

Huron and Provincials

I’ve recently painted up some wonderful Galloping Major figures, Huron Warriors with Hand-to-Hand Weapons, Anglo-American Provincials Under Attack, and Anglo-American Civilians Settlers Defending Command and Characters. Settlers Command and Characters Huron with Hand Weapons Provincials Under Attack

Anglo-American Provincials

Ahhh, a chance to paint The Galloping Major’s miniatures again.  These are the guys that I’ve missed the most on my break from historical minis.  I’ve been watching people paint them and biding my time, well, I finally ordered them.  First impression of the figures is that they are cracking!  Great character and lots of […]

Mohawks (5) – Warpaint Time

So, I’ve had these lads sitting around for some time.  I currently have 120ish models from the Galloping Major and that includes NO doubles of the same figure.  Pretty impressive.  When I began to order from the Major, I made a small purchase and decided I love them then made a larger purchase, which happened […]

Canadian Militia in Capotes

These guys were great fun to paint.  I didn’t know a thing about Miliciens or Canadian Militia when I started this project over a year ago, but I have found them very interesting since.  The Galloping Major range seems to have embraced them with a passion as I now have 24 of them with completely […]

Settlers Defending (2)

  This is my second group of Settlers Defending from the Galloping Major.  His figures continue to get better and better.  I enjoyed painting these guys even more than I enjoyed painting the last lot.  The addition of the vests added a lot of detail and interest into the figures.  I really like the way […]

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 […]

Rangers (4)

I have finally finished the last of my current Galloping Major figures.  These last few were a lot of fun.  I really like painting the tricorns and lace on the uniforms.  There’s not a lot to say about them that hasn’t been said before as this is the fourth lot of Rangers that I have […]

Mohawks (4) – Last of the Mohawk…ins

It’s with great pleasure that put the final bits of paint on these fine warriors.  I really enjoyed painting the Mohawks as they were the first FIW figs that I painted and are really a lot of fun.  I used a lot of blue and read and warpaint on this last batch.  Not much to […]

Huron (3)

I have finished my last batch of Huron warriors.  These guys were a lot of fun to paint and I even made a few alterations to them.  I’m not a big fan of headbands and in this last group I had a few guys with headbands, the one in the blanket and the guy standing […]
