FIW Militia

Sorry for the lack of updates but real life is taking precedent at the moment. Gaming is definitely on the back foot and my painting is only on a sporadic basis. That said I did manage to complete a handful more figures for my French and Indian war collection. These are 2 units of militia, each of 4 figures. I will be adding to these to bring both units up to their 6 figure maximum. The figures themselves are from Front Rank's AWI range. I like the fact that you can pick out the individual figures that you want and in the quantity that you want.

I also painted up an officer for my unit of rangers. This figure is also from Front Rank. Size wise each matches in well with the AW miniatures I currently use for my rangers. The only noticeable difference is the length of the rifle, which is significantly shorter on the Front Rank model.

I also finally finished off the final building, another log house from Pegasus Hobbies. These plastic kits have much to recommend them. I have seen the latest MDF ones from 4ground, but currently cannot see me getting any at this time.

This model will probably see use as the main focal point within a settlement as it is larger than the other models I have or act as a stand alone trading post.

Great work. I need to get some Civs and Militia for some Indian Raids.

Very nice work and I agree it's a nice feature of Front Rank being able to pick and choose each figure.

Real life can be a pain sometimes!

I know what you mean about real life getting in the way.

I also seem to have lost my painting mojo and cannot seem to get anything done at the moment.
