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 […]

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 […]

Review of Bloody Mohawk

Bloody Mohawk  by Robert Berleth This is simply a fantastic book, both in terms of writing and content.  I thoroughly enjoyed it from the moment I started reading until the moment I put it down.  It takes you through the Mohawk Valley from 1713-1794 and details the major ethinic groups and individuals that lived 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 […]

Summer Time and Hubbardton Reenactment

I have been quite quite on the blog for a bit, but that’s because I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling lately.  I started in late June with a  trip to Philidelphia for work, so no time for taking in to many sites.  Then it was off to Quebec City for a fun trip […]

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 […]

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 […]
