Picking up the tomahawk or so finally begins my FIW project

The French and Indian War skirmish element has been a dream project of mine for many years, but until now I wasn't quite sure how to start and so after spending far too long procrastinating I decided to get on with it and jump in! What better way to start the project off then with the iconic Indians who add so much colour and give that special look we all have come to associate with the period.

These Indians are from Redoubt and I just really like them! The figures are quite large with a lot of character which is a big plus for me. Most of their packs are very good indeed, with a few not of the same quality so check before buying.

I'm playing around with backgrounds as I need the practice and the period really just asks for that so I hope you like it! I also included white background close ups pics for those wanting to seeing the figures in more clear light. They are on a scouting mission looking for an good point of ambush is the storyline behind the photo.

The rules I have in mind are Muskets and Tomahawks and This Very Ground. I don't like square bases for my skirmish figures so I'll simply state the middle of a figures chest is his facing which comes into play in the former rule set.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

I also want to give a special thanks to Ray for sending me the very cool and prized Posties rejects dice I won in a draw on his super blog which I of course suggest you visit.
