More Indians for FIW


Finished a few more Indians for my FIW project. The figures are once again from Redoubt. I just really like these guys!! I think Redoubt pulled off a truly hawkish and dangerous feel to these figures that other ranges haven't quite got. I'm not saying they are the best sculpted with Conquest or Perry giving some serious competition, but in attitude and feel they sure are the best IMHO. Down side once again is the clean up which in places can get excessive to the point where you really can't correct it all and therefore have to wing it with some shading. I'll be adding Galloping Major to the Redoubt collection at some point which I feel will compliment each other very well in both size and general feel.

If your curious I've used mostly Foundry paints and some Vallejo.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  4. Nice minis - my own are Foundry and Perry. Redoubt normally seem much bigger figures - how are these?

    1. Thank you Bill. Redoubt figures are between 28mm and 32mm and are full figured. No doubt they will tower over your Foundry figures so mixing wouldn't work here. They are bigger and more robust then the Perry's, but you could mix them if your not overly picky. Redoubt mixes best with Renegade and Galloping Major.

  5. You did (as always) a great paint job. The figures have a very fierce look. I also like the woods in the background.

    Cheers

  7. Wonderful painting and basing. And posing! A friend was just talking to me about trying Muskets and Tomahawks. After looking at your fine work, the siren song is louder!

  8. I have to agree with you Christopher, these sculpts have that litte something that really make them unique. You did a great job on them. Are the sculpts larger than normal 28mm (similar to their ECW line)?

    1. Thank you very much Curt. Yes they are large miniatures between 28mm and 32mm as are all Redoubt as far as I know and so won't mix well with Foundry or Conquest as they will dwarf them. You can mix them with Perry in a pinch, but again will be bigger then them too. They will be taller then Front Rank, but both are bulky figures so the difference will be less noticeable then with Perry. Redoubt works best with Renegade and Galloping Major.

    2. Thanks for the confirmation. I thought they might be on the larger side. Still very characterful castings on the whole.

  11. They do look great, love the chap bending down scouting the ground. I do like the variety of poses in Redoubt's figure range. But I especially like the canoes and boats they sell. Will these be appearing on your blog any day soon?

  15. Yes I'll go along with what everyone else has said already Christopher.......nicely done, and interesting period.

  16. Yes, this is awesome.

    The miniatures are great to start with. But your consistent and well saturated painting , together with the ace-scenery really make especially the first shot a piece of art.

  19. Gorgeous and inspiring as ever! Remembering me to finish mine as well:)
    Curious what you think of TVG. We tried it a couple of times and while we love Disposable Heroes this set just did not work for us at all.

    1. Thank you very much! I'm nowhere near the figure count I need for gaming so I don't have a set opinion on TVG. Actually, my sights are more set on Muskets and Tomahawks first.
