Ooopse. Stuck it in 18th C. by mistake.

The terrain looks spot-on for Florida…only things missing are the mosquitoes! Very interresting period to wargame.

Quite nice! Figures 40 mm?

Yes well spotted.
It's the Battle of Lake Okeechobee by Richard Gillingham
from the 2nd US-Seminole War. 40mm figures.
It's about US Forces attempt to kill or capture a band of renegade Seminole Indians in the claustrophobic Florida swamps in the late 1830's


Amazing facial expression on the US soldier holding his rifle at port,all the other figures look great too,but this one must be a best seller!who produces them are they still available?
It is really great to see 40mm is still out there even with the 28mm mass production onslaught,it is obvious you can convey a lot of detail and generally a better look to a figure at 40mm!
Well done!

I wrote Richard last month and he was very kind and helpful regarding questions about his Lake Okeechobee terrain.

Great presentation, hope you enjoyed the game. My ancestor came down to Florida for the 2nd Seminole Indian War

Coacoochee and a number of other captives were able to escape their cell at Fort Marion in St. Augustine, but Osceola did not go with them. He died in prison, probably of malaria.

Chief Osceloa was moved to Ft Moultrie, across the channel from Ft Sumter. He died there is buried outside the fort with a few other Seminoles.


Wilipedia has this:

Osceloa is buried to the right outside the main gate:
