My French Indian war project is now moving forward at a rapid pace.
The project has three phases:
1. Source and Paint Figures – sourcing complete and around 50% through painting)
2. Source or scratchbuild log cabins and other suitable structures, plus fences etc – Grand Manner looks promising but I need to save the pennies
3. Decide whether I need to build a new table with wooded cliffs, gullies, rivers and farmsteads or do I just slap it all down on the table –
Given that the figure painting is most laborious task I figured I would tackle this first
The intention is to paint around 200+ 28mm figures that represent the various protagonists.
These will include:
British Line Infantry (c 30 figures including officers)
French Line Infantry(c 30 figures including officers)
Rogers Rangers (I went a bit mad here and have ended up with 28 of these guys)
Canadian Militia & Trappers (12)
Native Indians (around 60 figures – these can be used for Huron, Mohawks etc)
Civilians, Militia & Provincials – 30 figures
All the figures have been sourced from Perry Miniatures, Galloping Major, and Redoubt
The following photos illustrate the Redcoats ....more to follow
