I have 20 line infantry per side, 16 British provincials, 16 French marines, a dozen Indians, 5 rangers, and a handful of civilians. I certainly need more Indians and civilians. Everything is 60mm John Jenkins figures.

45thdiv Supporting Member of TMP19 Sep 2018 11:20 a.m. PST

All mine are John Jenkins 60mm figures too. I have been gaming with them for about 11 years. I have 50 Indian, 45 French marines, 70 French regulars, 20 French militia and 2 French guns.

I have about 12 civilians, 12 rangers, 60 provincial soldiers, 60 British soldiers, 40 Highlanders, and some odds and ends.

I have been slowing down on the collection due to the cost rising faster than my budget. But his new Saratoga range is very nice. Not 7YW but I don't mind.

I have been thanking about liquidating my Jenkins figures and going with 40mm Sash and Sabre due to cost, but I do like the "Drums Along the Mohawk" civilians I found on Jenkin's website a few days ago.

Mine are all RAFM and Old Glory. A couple hundred Indians and a smattering of French. I have about 80 British infantry and some American militia.

79thPA Supporting Member of TMP19 Sep 2018 12:48 p.m. PST

The Rafm French marines are still some great sculpts.

Winston Smith19 Sep 2018 1:07 p.m. PST

I used to be able to do Plains of Abraham at 1:20.
Sold most of them off.
Kept the Rangers, Indians and militia who went right into AWI service.
I'm slowly building up enough for 40mm skirmishes.

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP19 Sep 2018 1:15 p.m. PST

I have 66 Hurons, 12 Mohawk, 12 militia, 60 Compagnie Franche de la Marine, 60 French regulars, 72 British regulars and about a dozen characters, if memory serves.

Two huge line units, two Compagnie Franc-oh bother- have a look for yourself:

Oh the British too? Here then: link

Many in a great variety of 28mm manufacturers, and a big bucket load coming from Sash & Saber when their KS ships sometime around the start of the year.

For new additions, moments ago I just finished basing 50 New York Provincials, 21 Canonniers-Bombardiers (17 as combat pioneers, 4 as gun crew), and 26 Corps de Cavalerie (20 foot, 6 mounted).

45thdiv Supporting Member of TMP19 Sep 2018 2:25 p.m. PST

@79thPA. The Drums along the Mohawk range is pretty nice. I got the first 2 sets, the guy running and the two boys. The boys are ok, slightly off scale, but not bad. I don't like the guy running at all. He looked good in the photos, but holding it in hand, not so much. I like the poses of the next few sets of civilians and will pick up a set of each.

If I did not have so much of the Jenkins figures, I would get the sash and saber 40mm figures. But I just don't want to start over and then have to paint them as well. Too many other projects need painting.

Two 24 fig French line regiments (who get used a lot for European theatre), 2 24 fig French companie de la Marine, 1 24 fig French militia unit, 2 24 fig Native units

Two 24 fig British regiments, 1 24 fig militia regiment, 1 12 fig ranger unit, 2 24 fig Highlander units (who also get used a lot for Europe)

Dexter Ward20 Sep 2018 2:22 a.m. PST

32 regulars a side in two units of 16.
British have 16 rangers, 12 light infantry, 20 militia.
French have 12 marines, 12 militia, 6 coureurs des bois.
Also about 20 armed civlians.
Then there are about 60 or so Indians armed with musket, bow and tomahawk who can serve as allies or opposition for either side.

nevinsrip20 Sep 2018 3:22 a.m. PST

Britains and Conte painted metal 54-60 mm figures, over 150, plus buildings and accessories..

Unpainted plastic 54 mm Barszo, Marx, AIP, ACTA, CTS and too many others to think of. Over 1,000 figures, easily.

28 mm Galloping Major, Old Glory, Kings Mountain, Perry,
Foundry, Dixon and others, painted and based. Couple of thousand at least.

Around 60 natives, 75 French/Canadian types, maybe 140 British/colonials and a smattering of upscale and common civilian types.

I wish I knew….

I appear to have a bunch of small F&IW units mixed in with my 15mm AWI collection – they came along for the ride in my many flea market acquisitions. I've never done the research to figure out who they are.

I have a bunch (50-100?) of generic painted woodland Indians that I've used in AWI games a few times. I also have a box full of unpainted woodland Indians (hundreds!) with dozens of lead canoes and teepees and stuff. It looks like one of my flea market sellers had Big Plans™ at one time… grin

The F&IW always seemed to me like a perfect war for skirmish gaming, not so great for battalion maneuvers, so I never developed any interest in gaming it in 15mm. I should probably reconsider using it all with TSATF – TSATF works great with 15mm, and I already have the terrain.

My FIW figs are 18mm (Blue Moon). Our gaming group uses a variant of This Very Ground rules.
72 British (& Scottish) line regulars, 12 grenadiers & 12 lights. 36 Rangers, 48 Provincials, 60 colonial militia.
72 French line regulars, 30 Marines & 36 Canadian militia.
16 artillery crew figs for each side.
100 Indians.
Several settlers & Indian villagers. Several mounted & dismounted officers for each side.
Not a large collection but one that accommodates our gaming group.
Interesting & informative thread.

spontoon21 Sep 2018 4:48 p.m. PST

Lots of Highlanders!

wargamingUSA24 Sep 2018 8:20 a.m. PST

28mm: Conquest Indians, Rangers, Cours de Bois, and Militia, along with Flint & Feather Indians. 112 figures total.

Glenn Pearce26 Sep 2018 7:17 a.m. PST

Hello 79thPA!

I have a large small scale 6mm collection from Baccus6mm. They are based for the rules that I wrote for Baccus "Ruse de Guerre" which are 60mm x 30mm. Light units and Indians are 8 figures, cavalry 9 and formed infantry 24 figures.

12 bases of Indians
20 bases of French Line
6 bases of French Marines
1 base of French Cavalry
6 bases of French Militia
5 bases of French Artillery
8 bases of French Commanders
4 bases of Highlanders
12 bases of British Line
4 bases of British Lights
1 base of British Grenadiers
4 bases of British Artillery
11 bases of British Commanders

Roughly 1,400 figures

I have roughly another 500 figures to paint covering the wars prior to F&IW (King Philips War, Queen Ann's War, King Williams War, King Georges War) that I will be playing at one to one.

Best regards,


Borderguy19020 Oct 2018 4:43 p.m. PST

Pretty much everything Galloping Major has produced. Some 250-odd British, French, Provincials and Natives. Another 50 or so Conquest minis, and 30ish Kings Mountain minis as well.

Not a one has any paint…

epturner Supporting Member of TMP24 Nov 2018 12:21 p.m. PST

A crap ton in 25/28mm.

I just discovered a box with about 50 Old Glory Indians with bows that are primed, ready to paint.

I can always use more.

My dream was for lots of First Nations, hundreds on the table.
