Hello everyone,

What to take as 25/28 mm figurines to correctly represent the warriors of Tecumseh and Tecumseh himself for the Tecumseh's War and the War of 1812 ?

Warlord Games makes him and his brother. Trent Miniatures also makes one.

Thank you athun25,

And the Indians of this early nineteenth are different from those of the franco-indian war in the eighteenth century?

I intend to use a good old bilingual rule called "Les Aigles" because I love it and there are army lists budgeted for this conflict.

Also before I would have to know the numbers of men in the different units in the different battles, that does not exist?

For the Indians I did not speak of their armaments – which must hardly be improved, but hardly different – from that of the Indians of the XVIIIth century, but rather of their appearance may be different from those of the Indians of the Franco-Indian war because they are not the same nations and I was talking about differences of appearance between the warriors of the different nations participating in the war of 1812.

In fact, we want to make a difference between the uniformity details of the uniforms of the white units from one unit to another, so why not for the appearance of the Indians, even if they do not wear uniforms, there is necessarily features that allowed them to recognize each other at first glance.

It's just a matter of painting, haircut, etc. That sort of thing, but we're gagen of time when Indian figurines correctly designate this or that nation, the generic figurines for the Indians I do not like too much ..

Brigade Games make some very nice First Nations warriors for the War of 1812. I like the Perry AWI models too.

Too bad that Osprey did not publish a book about the Indians who participated in this war.

Are the 2 manufacturers' figures compatible?

Kuckleduster has excellent First Nations figs as well.

Brigade Games and Perry are very compatible. I have a small First Nations warband including figures from both and I'd have to check their websites now to tell you which are which.
