Rangers, Frontiersmen, and Iroqouis Warriors
And finally, we have six stout Iroquois warriors (Set B, Conquest) to round out Rogers command. They are all armed with muskets and either a tomahawk, a round headed club, or a spiked wooden combat stick. Eventually I'll add another six Indian warriors so that Roberts command will have 12 whites and 12 Indians.
I'll soon be posting a picture of the interim Britannian commander of this band of diverse figures, which includes the light infantry, rangers, and colonial grenadiers from an earlier post. I say he is an interim commander because he is a Dixon British dragoon officer. He will eventually be replaced by a more universal looking command figure, part of a group of Old Glory figures I received for Christmas.
These will be the last 18th Century figures I'll be painting for a while. Next I will start on some more late 19th Century Victorian Colonial figures - Egyptian infantry and cavalry, British naval brigade, and Arab opponents - for my annual Colonial game at the Gulf South convention, Bayou Wars, in June.
