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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Huron (2)

I started this project as a fan of the Rangers and Iroquois, and really only choose to paint their opponents out of necessity. I suppose that comes from living on this side of the border (even if only by 1.5 miles). I’ve really come to like the Huron models as I paint more of them. […]

Warpaint Your Own Indian!

For a while now, I’ve been suffering over how to make unique warpaint schemes on my Northeastern Woodland Indians. I came up with the idea of starting a collection of warpaint designs. Scott from Paperterrain.com was kind enough to create a blank template for us to draw on. So if you feel like contributing to […]

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. […]

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 […]

Further Canoe Progress

I’ve had a bit more time to work on the canoe. This time instead of using sand paper, I went whole hog and broke out the dremmel tool. I threw out a lot of dust, but was able to work on it at a much faster pace. I really like where it’s at right now, […]

Make My Own Canoe!? Sure…

When I made the decision to leave 6mm behind and try something different, my main motivation was creating something with personality. Individuals and places rather than troops and battlefields. One of my main inspirations has come from a poster on the Lead Adventures forum, Silent Invader. I have seen what he has created and painted […]

Mohawks 1

I’ve been showing my progress on these guys for a few posts now. Can I Call It a War Party? The Mohawks Have Landed Well, they’re finally finished and I’m damned happy with the results. One of the toughest parts for me is picking out the right colors to use, not necessarily paint shades but […]
