More nice brushwork. The painting style is very reminiscent of "Rafa" Archiduque.

Excellent paint work and imo the Conquest Indians are the best.

Nicely done.

So the painting is first class, but my preference would have been to add warpaint.

My general comment on Indian figures – why do sculptors insist on making them look like life long members of Gold's Gym?

They are nice looking figures, I agree.

I was reading about the Black Hawk War and it said that the white men were jealous because the indians were more muscular and was afraid their women might be attracted to them.True or not I don't know but the indian boys grew up hunting ,fishing basically doing outdoor activities that would develop their bodies.

Agreed that they would have been in pretty good shape, but not along the lines of Conan the Barbarian. They were not lifting weights to bulk up.

There is artwork from the period that supports these body types.
