More Indians! (Analogue contest 3rd entry)

Here's my third entry in the Analogue challenge, 16 28mm Indians for my French Indian Wars project, figures by Conquest miniatures and bases by Litko. I used my usual 3 colour method (base coat + 2 highlights) finished with a coat of Army painter.

They are a mix of Delaware, Fox and Iroquois indians; they are to be used as French allied Indians in my games. Conquest miniatures is a fantastic range, but their Indians are even better. Some of the best sculpts I've ever painted. I did these in two batches of 8, as I like to paint skirmish figures in small batches, and these guys certainly deserve the extra attention. These are my first tries at painting war paints, and I'm quite pleased with the results. 


 

I took a break from painting the Canaanites to finish these as they were needed for a our very first FIW game, which took place last week. Pics will follow in a few days.

These guys give me 82 points.

For those anxiously waiting for the Chariots, I'm currently basing them and hope to post pics at the latest next monday. I had some Army Painter issues which caused a delay.
