If you go down to the woods today...

... you're in for a big surprise. 

Accounts coming in from survivors tell of Mohawk war parties striking up and down the Ohio River country. The provincial government of New France had better beware, because the situation is about to get worse. Some reports even suggest that the Mohawk have been incited to this barbarity by the Anglais...

In a last spurt of painting before work gets busy again, I've managed to make a start on our French and Indian War project using Blue Moon's 15mm range. I'm still waiting on some smaller bases for my British regulars, so I focused initially on 12 my Mohawk warriors, and a British captain. All the Blue moon officers carry partizans which I thought a bit cumbersome for the woods of North America, so I cut this chap's down and replaced it with a tomahawk. Due the the wash/ink used on them, they are all still woefully shiny, but nothing a quick spray of matt varnish wont fix. I just need to buy some. Any wait for a dry day with low humidity. In Ireland. Coming into winter. Sigh.

This group is more than enough to start harrying the French in games of Song of Drums and Tomahawks, and a start towards a force for Sharp Practice 2. Not sure when I will get more done, but a nice little project for the winter. :)

  1. I like that hand swap - and it's nice to see someone else doing 15mm skirmish in this period.
