Travelling the waterfalls


A bit of a return to my French and Indian wars as I want to get a game in of Muskets and  Tomahawks this year and I love the period.:-)

The scene is of a small returning war party finished with raiding for the day and heading home to their Wig Wam's. The figures are from the brilliant Redoubt French and Indian War line which I really like! These figures unlike some others I've had from Redoubt were pretty easy to clean up and painting them was quite fun. I think Redoubt perfectly captures the look of the Indians of this period and just gives them a dangerous and free feel to them. All their canoe packs are great and are a must do in my opinion.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  8. Christopher, while all of your works are stunning, this vignette is an art piece! The blue shirt with white polka dots is perfectly rendered. In your composition, I can almost hear a twig snap as the warrior turns his head to investigate while the canoe bearers trundle forward, blindly. This is one of my favorites!

  11. Truly stunning work here, Christopher. Not just the figures, which are superb, but the photography as well. I will keep Redoubt in mind if I ever feel up to painting some Natives. Best, Dean

  12. Very high class on this vignette! And the waterfall background makes it seem almost like a scene out of "Last of the Mohicans". Lovely work.
