It's 39 degrees here in Sydney today [It got to 42 at my place - Millsy]. I did have a whole lot of other lead figures painted, but unfortunately they melted. Nevertheless, I did manage to finish off my first figures for yet another new project. So here's a French Wilderness force from Northstar Miniatures, ready for our planned forays into Muskets and Tomahawks at the gaming club this year.
The force is led by a Compagnie de la Marine officer, and includes ten of his men.
Supporting them are six Coureur des Bois, trappers sporting impressive hipster beards.
The force is completed by six Hurons.
The French Indian Wars is a new period for me, and I'm not entirely confident about various things I've painted such as the Compagnie de la Marine uniforms, Huron skin colour and their war paint. Any feedback is appreciated!
I went for an Autumn feel with the bases, thanks particularly to some leaves Paul O'G gave me about two years ago. I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be today than strolling in a nice cool New England forest in Autumn. That's 23 figures, so 115 points please Millsy!
Impressive work Alan, all the more because you're obviously not convinced about how accurate you've been with skin tones and uniform colours. They *look* right to my relatively untutored eye and just as importantly the colour choices and tones work well together. I'm especially impressed Huron face paint and skin tones and since you asked so nicely, 115 points it shall be! Cheers, Millsy
