First up is Snorri the smith, leader of our traveling trio of itinerant craftsdwarves.
Next up is Hár the stone mason. Both he and Snorri are from the same Games Workshop Dwarf Rangers box set from which their friend Borri hailed. I love the cloaks and the poses of these sculpts. My only complaint is, as they're one piece figures, it's difficult to field more than one box on the table and not have things look redundant.
Finally, here's a French Regular from Conquest Miniatures. I've been slowly working on my Canadian wilderness force for Muskets & Tomahawks, but it's been slow going. I think I first got started on a militia unit in August of last year. Well, I just found out that my friend Brian is moving back to the UK soon and that we'll be sending him off with a big game of M&T at the club, so there's no time like the present to get these Canadians done.
My previous experience painting uniformed troops involved ACW Confederates and WWII U.S. Paratroopers - i.e. lots of butternut and olive drab respectively. Eighteenth century regular units are an entirely different challenge. I can't wait to see a finished unit in formation!
Next week will be more of the same branched paths with dwarves, wargs and Dark Ages/fantasy warriors on one hand and French regulars on the other.
Those GW Lord of the Rings dwarves are such good minis, very nice to see ranging dwarves rather than the usual armoured dwarves. Lovely blue colour on Hár's cloak there too.
And very nice to see some Muskets and Tomahawks in the challenge, not an era of mine but I gather it wa sa popular ruleset a couple of years ago. I think you're right, seeing those white-coated regulars en masse will be great.
15 Points to you!
