So 49 true warriors including one Curtgeld, and this old boot is going to take a nap!
Hopefully the minion will notice this entry of 1st Nation troops as the poor dear let the last 5 sneak past him! ;)
A PS for Dux
Until I went through my notes, I forgot all about the "Copper Tribes" and the extensive trade network of Native America.Small bits of copper including some armbands and earrings did get passed on as well as turquoise and other precious stones. A lot was bead work and leather work and scrim saw/carving.
For everybody else, there is a fair amount of smack talking from my ancestral side, but I wouldn't change the history for anything. The history made me who I am and the rest would be trodding on butterflies, besides I am an American Soldier and I know the Oaths I have sworn. ;)
This is quite a remarkable entry David. It's great to share your passion for the period and the history of these warriors and area. Your energy and pride really shine through in the posting and in the paint work. And what a lot of work - holy cow! I'm sure Curt will chime in below, but I expect he will be thrilled with this wonderful Curtgeld! As someone with some roots in northern Ontario and the Sault Ste Marie area (just north of Michigan's lovely Upper Peninsula) for me this made for a fascinating read, and I'm sure all the Challengers will enjoy it.
Oh - and that's another whopping 265 points for you. You keep implying you will take a break from painting...but I wonder if that will ever happen? :)
