From RayR - Drums in the Ohio Valley (60 points)

 At last,,,,,,,,, I've got some figures completed! That dreaded thing called life has curtailed my painting endeavours of late, although I'm hoping for one last entry if I can just find the time to finish them off.

As you may well know I'm trying to paint up some Woodland Indians for my Donnybrook shenanigans. Being as I'm using these for the late 1600's, not the French Indian Wars of the 1750's, I wanted more warriors with handweapons. So I took a chance and bought these, not having seen them in the flesh before I didn't know how large they were compared to my other figures. They are on the larger side of 25mm. They do vary in height quite a bit, the smallest being around 32mm while the tallest a whopping 37mm! The figures are from the Drums in the Ohio Valley collection from Blue Moon, bought in the UK from Old Glory. I did buy another pack, they were delayed in the post and only arrived of Friday, (gotta be honest, I'd forgotten all about them!) They won't make the painting table this time round though, but never mind.

Anyway they may well be a little larger than the norm, but I really do like the action poses on these all bar one, who looks as though he's from another pack?
These bad boys should net me 60 points to add to my total!

MilesR: These are fantastic depiction of the First Nations - and 60 points is a nice haul.


  1. Nice looking warband!
    Best Iain

  2. Great work on these big fellas Ray. I really like the fellow holding his musket and gesticulating with his tomahawk.

  3. Really nice work Ray, they look strapping!

  4. Very nice Ray .. nailed it

  5. They look great Ray - happiness is a horde of native americans whooping and lobbing tomahawks at your enemies!

  6. Great job Ray - the groundwork is very nice too, everything looks really sharp.

  7. Great stuff, they look very imposing indeed!

  8. I really like these,Ray! With my ancestors prowling the woodline, you should have it in the bag! ;)
    I like the brave to the right charging with the tomahawk, really good colors on that pose!
    I might have to sore some of these myself! ;)
