First Model for Muskets & Tomahawks

Well, here's the first Woodland Indian for my 200pt Indian warband for the rather super looking Muskets and Tomahawks, a game I hope I can use at the club once I have enough warbands painted.
He was painted using the dip and highlight approach. The black warpainted flesh, the breech clout and the ammo-bag all had an extra highlight (usually I just bung on a highlight with the basecoat colour...) as they needed that extra layer.

Woodland basing courtesy of Army Painter Wilderness Tufts and Poison Ivy and some clump foliage I had in my scenics box - I am trying to get less of a 'meadow' and more 'under the woodland canopy' effect!!



I like the overall painting and basing effect and he's taken about 2.5 hours to paint (that's SPEED painting for me!)

More of 'em to come over the next few weeks - there are 23 models in the warband altogether!!

Hope you like him!!

Beautiful painting. Note to self start taking over 2.5 hours per figure. Also thought they were Native Americans now?

Really nice work with the colors. Hard to replicate warpaint, but you've pulled it off superbly. Dean

Forgive my political incorrectness, but they call them 'Indians' in the book. I mean no disrespect...

Looks really great. I'm starting painting miniatures for M&T too in a few days. What manufacturer is this miniature from?

GuitarheroAndy said...

He's a Conquest model. Dunno what tribe he is or what pack he is from as I got him in a trade...

Glad you all like him :-)

Spiffing! Look forward to seeing more. Also, any chance of a mini review of M&T when you've played a bit?

Good work!
