The Christmas tree has been packed away, our guests have departed and the paint pots are finally open! It’s taken awhile, but I finally have something to share for the new year - my first entry in the years's Analogue Hobby Painting Challenge.
This is a small six man unit of Woodland Indians and with all that war paint they are clearly looking to blood their Tomahawks! (a sod to paint but it gives a great effect). They will join two Ranger units that I finished last year (see here: Colonial Rangers for FIW) to complete my initial British FIW force. These Mohawk Allies were a lot of fun to paint and I’ll be adding more to them in the future as Alan and I set off to progress a small campaign using Sharpe Practice 2 this year. I'll need some British Regular Line Infantry too I imagine...
Figs are from the Northstar "British Wilderness Force” boxed set and this entry at the AHPC VII blog can be found here:
This modest entry gets me off the mark at last - 33 points (with some kind bonus points for the warpaint) - but I need to get my skates on to meet my mark of 850 points (with 1000 points being a hopeful aspiration!). Next up is the Bonus Round: Armour, which I did something a bit different for :-)
