From IannickM: 28mm French & Indian Wars Indians (82 points)


From Iannick:
Here's my third entry in the challenge, 16 28mm Indians for my French Indian War 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.




Beautiful work Iannick. I especially admire your rendition of the warpaint, particulalry the fellow with the half-blue face - very fierce indeed! (Wonderful backdrop as well, btw.)

These representatives of three indian nations will give Iannick 82 points (with a few points extra for the excellent warpaint).
