Rangers (3) – Rogers and Co.

I have been anticipating these guys for a long time.  This is the first new release from The Galloping Major since I started painting his figures, so they set back my complete figures percetages creating a desire to get some paint on them quickly.  It still took me a little while as I was waiting […]

Canadian Militia (5)

I finally finished one group of my FIW figures.  I have been painting them in a rotation to keep things fresh, so this means all of the groups are getting near completion. As usual, I have been saving my favorite command figures for the last group.  I’m especially fond of the Milice command figure with […]

Mohawks (3)

I have been painting Mohawk warriors for a while now and I thought it was finally time I plowed through some of my more favorite models. I wanted to wait a while before I tried them to make sure that I worked out the bugs and did the best job I could on them. These […]

Rangers (2)

I have finished my second batch of Rangers, those wearing caps this time. I’m really liking how these turned out, the Rangers take longer to paint than all the other units due to all of the details, but it’s a fun process and the end result is worth it. I painted one as a Provincial […]

Canadian Militia (4)

I’ve finished up another batch of Canadian Militia. I’ve started to paint more of the command figures as I gain more experience, so I now have 3 of the 6 command figures finished. I’ve also taken a group shot which I am very happy with. The thing about skirmish gaming that I never experienced before […]

Mohawks (2)

This is the first time I have painted a second group of figures. Meaning, I have already painted a group of Mohawks, but I painted three other groups of figures before starting this group. Having a go at them was easier this time as I have much more experience under my belt than I did. […]

Rangers (1)

These troops have been a long time coming. I choose to paint them last as they are the most involved troops that I posses. Lots of straps and buttons and trim. I’m very happy with the results and it was kinda nice to have a more regular type of troop to paint for a change, […]

Huron (1)

Just finished these up last night. This is the second set of Indians I’ve done and the first with any experience in 28mm behind me, if paint all of 19 models counts as experience. I used a wash on these, which I didn’t on my previous Mohawks, and I think it helps to soften the […]

Canadian Militia (3)

I’ve been working on these guys for a while and I finally have enough of them to put a small unit on the table. I finished two lads that I had painted previously and stripped as I didn’t like the effects of GW washes. After some time in Simple Green, they were ready to base […]

Flamboyant Miliciens, Canadian Militia (2)

It seems like it has been forever since I posted to the old blog. For some reason, it has taken me ages to paint these three figures. I think one of the reasons is that I don’t have a system in place for turning out figures. I think at one point, I had every figure […]
