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 […]

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.

Oooh…Shiny, Miliciens and Washes Part Deux

When I first saw these guys on the Galloping Major’s web site, I didn’t really think to much of them. I mean as a FIW layman, I knew nothing about the Canadian Militia and their role in the war, so I didn’t see any use for them. I have spent quite a bit of time […]

Miliciens and More Experiments with Washes

I started to paint a few of my Canadian Militia last week and finished them up today. I am relatively happy with the way they turned out, but not as happy with the way my Mohawks turned out. I’m experimenting with washes to help give some depth to my painting. The Mohawks are the product […]
