Very nice, I cant seem to find any armed with spears though. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong time period

John the OFM20 Sep 2009 2:08 p.m. PST

Old Glory, Dixon, Redoubt, Hinchliffe, RSM…

John the OFM20 Sep 2009 2:10 p.m. PST

Brigade Games, from the King Philip's War era…

BTW, most AWI Indians would have muskets. Very few would have exclusively spears or other melee weapons. Hpwever, Old Glory does have such a pack.

Spears would be unusual weapons for Woodland Indians of any era. They did their hunting with bows and their killing with warclubs. The Plains tribes made more use of the lance hunting the buffalo.

"Brigade Games, from the King Philip's War era"

………. I can't be sure but I think these Indians are carrying matchlocks.

The settlers may be, but the Indians should not be. The Indians in KPW had a technological superiority to the settlers. They traded for only the best, while the settlers settled for what was cheap. They also had a very well developed gunsmithing craft.
See "The Skulking Way of war".

Galloping Major have 4 packs of Mohawk warriors in their F&IW range.

Anyone know of a range with lances? I need them for a sci-fi game

For your purposes, I'd go with these Conquest figures (except they seem to be out of stock):

Unless, for some plot-driven reason you must have Woodland Indians from the C.18? With all due respect to the many fine NA lines out there, I've had the opportunity to see the Conquest figures "in the flesh" and they are utterly delightful. It's enough to tempt me into a new period

Thanks for posting the King Philips War models. I've been interested in this conflict recently, and didn't know Brigade Games sold these!

Shakespear21 Sep 2009 10:14 a.m. PST

Thank you Jeff!

those are perfect!

……… No, I meant the models are carrying matchlocks (as best I can tell) … Not appropriate for AWI … or maybe a few might be???

I love the figures. Brigade Games did a super job with these.

Matchlocks would have been long gone by 1770s.

The Jim Jones Cocktail Hour22 Sep 2009 3:39 p.m. PST

The Brigade Games KPW Indians are carrying flintlocks as do the rest of the range. Annoyingly so for those of us who would like some more Europeans of the era toting matchlocks. Still that's not the most difficult of conversion jobs anyway.

Check the photos on the BG website.

I own alot of Native Americans for the FIW – AWI period and pretty much the top manufacturers (Perry / OG / Conquest) mix very well together and that is how they are in my army. Blue Moon is "slightly" larger but not enough that I care.

About the only Indians I have that are smaller is the old RSM Indians. They fight right along with everyone else, but there is a size difference (they are slightly smaller). However, in the mass effect, you have to look to find them in the crowd. Its not like halflings and giants.

On the other side, Redoubt Indians are taller than most. They are also beefier or well fed. Nice sculpts though and I like them (which is why I bought them).

Overall, I enjoyed painting the Conquest, Blue Moon and Redoubt figures with OG finishing a close second. I probably would not buy any more RSM Indians simply because they do not fit in well with the rest. I like the few I have, but now that I have close to 200 uniquely painted models, I am slowing down a tad!

As for Conquest, write to Eric and see what is going on. He is a great person and a straight shooter. It may simply be a matter of the website not getting updated yet. I highly recommend Conquest for the detail and just pure – dare I say love – that is put into each casting.

"Annoyingly so for those of us who would like some more Europeans of the era toting matchlocks."

Take a look at Dixon's Grand Alliance range for Monmooth Rebels with matchlocks. You can also use regulars for more uniformed militia.

Thanks,

Stockbridge.

Stockton Indians can also be deadly, but their weapon of choice tends to be the hot adjusting sauce.
