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 ?

Conquest/ Warlord games makes 25/28 mm figures of both. They come as a set.

Thank you Gary,

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?

Knuckleduster and Brigade Games have some 1812 figures of the more unusual verity. Brigade has Indians along with Indian Department officers that are different from the generic musket armed Indians. Foundry have also rereleased their 1812 ranges. Old glory has an extensive range. For information on the units and numbers Knuckleduster has the 1814 Niagara Campaign for Black Powder and there are other scenario books out there. Wikipedia usually is a good start for these battles.

Thanks Charles BTB.

For the Indians I did not speak only 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 ..
