3 Little Indians (28mm Redobt)

Sometimes I paint very slowly, I really do. Especially when painting for myself.
And these 3 are painted for myself.

These 3 were bought from REDOUBT (LINK )
at the Broadside show last month. I did have a distinct lack of American Woodland Indians with Bows  so I rectified that by buying a single pack of 6 figures for the princely sum of £.50 (at the time)

As you can see from the second picture they are destined to fit in with my other Indians. I have 3 more on the painting table and hope to use them in an "En Garde" game. It is all in my head at the moment so perhaps best not say any more.  However should it take off you may expect to see a few more of these sorts on this blog in short order.

The 3 further Indians are all bow armed as I have enough with muskets for now and I hope enough with hand weapons of various sorts. But if we start playing in earnest I suspect that may change.

These were definitely painted for myself though and are now put away in a padded box until they are needed.

Thanks for looking and with luck (But no guarantees) a finished In Her Majesties Name (IHMN) force on Sunday. Until then, take care have fun and try not to overheat.

Now where did I put the Ice-cream I bought yesterday?

  3. Nice, I find the Redoubt figures a little large.

    1. Thank you Simon. I know exactly what you mean. Redoubt are a little large and a little chunky but for the price I would argue hard to beat.

  6. You've done a great job on those Clint, as Dave say's the warpaint is ace, but you've done a grand job on the skin tone as well.
    Just a thought - you painting all these blokes from "hot climates" and this hot weather IS just a coincidence isn't it??!!

    1. Thank you Addict. maybe I should paint some naval wargames stuff if that was true. And you just know I will be painting Eskimos when the snow is on the ground. Life is just like that.
