Sadly, we don't have a Board to discuss events in America in the 17th Century, so the AWI Board will have to do. grin

I suppose a major problem would be suitable figures. Any suggestions in 25/28mm?

Or I can always use my AWI figures and ignore Error.
I'm really getting into these minor skirmishes with major impact. I've been doing the Wyoming Massacre for years, for one thing.
Yankee Pennamite Wars and Whiskey Rebellion are also on the horizon.

Brigade Games have a very nice range of figures for King Philip's War. I imagine a good amount of the colonial militia types would work as would some ECW figures. For English reinforcements or Berkeley's men you could use League of Augsburg regulars. Not sure what Natives you could use for the Virginia specific tribes but I'm sure there's a proxy someplace.

I was planning on using some Royalist figures etc form my King Philip's war etc…..Warlord has some interesting ones, as well as Brigade Games.

Firelock Games has some of the best figures on the market, and they cover this period.

The Copplestone 1672 range from North Star and also available from Brigade would work for Berkeley's Crown forces.

As I implied above, the question is how well British and European dress and military translated to the colonies in 1676.
But you can't be too fussy about that or you will never get any gaming done!
grin

Having said that, the Firelock Native Americans (of course!) and English look quite good.

I've been knocking about with the idea of doing the Whisky Rebellion and the Burr conspiracy to include British and Spanish troops as well as native Americans. I've done some research on it and was surprised at the amount of uniformed troops and the flags involved.

Burr conspiracy, you betcha.
Throw in James Wilkinson, Mike Fink and his keelboat, Seminoles (Creeks actually) and Davy Crockett.
We're working on it.

Winston;
I can assist you. I have most of the needed figures.

Just want to get some of the more "appropriate" First Nations figures…
