Years ago when I moved to Florida I bought a bunch of the Old Glory Louisiana Grays from their Texas War of Independence line and painted them for the Seminole War. Conquest Miniatures has been promising 28mm Seminoles for three or four years. I bought several bags of Old Glory's new Seminoles at Historicon. I like them a lot. Anyway, I'm hoping to be ready for some Seminole War games at Cold Wars. I may use Santa Anna Rules, but I think I'm going to use GASLIGHT, which works well as a historical game if you don't use all the Victorian science fiction elements.

Cuban Bloodhounds and the Seminoles by James W. Covington 33 (2)
The U.S. Army attempted to use bloodhounds to sniff out Seminoles with little results. Might add an interesting element to gaming.

Thank you very much, Andrew/agplumer! Your offerings are GREATLY appreciated in the wake of the recent release of Old Glory's Second Seminole War range, and the (hopefully) future release from Conquest Miniatures.

Oh yeah, don't forget Geoff at QRF, as he sells Freikorps Seminoles in 15mm, for those of you who want to game a smaller scale.
