I was fortunate enough to be sent some figures sculpted by the very talented Bob Murch of Pulp Figures fame. My friend Barrie wanted me to paint up some of Mr Murch's new 28mm "Flint and Feather" Huron and Iroquois: http://www.cruciblecrush.com/flint-feather/
I can honestly say that these are some of the finest 28mm sculpts that I have ever had the opportunity to paint. I have painted a number of figures from the Pulp Figures range and they were great fun, but these woodland indians are just superb. They are clean casts with excellent detail, well proportioned, and dynamically posed. The larger areas of flesh gave me scope to paint tattoos and warpaint in natural earthy colours. The figures themselves are designed to represent "Iroquois/Haudenosaunee & Huron/Wendat Miniatures from the Legendary Pre-Contact Era" - so before the arrival of European settlers. I believe that there is a game system devised for the figures which pits them against other native peoples and legendary creatures. Even though there is not a musket in sight, I think they would mix in with other ranges for The French Indian Wars, or you could use them as Skraelings for Saga. I understand Bob Murch will be expanding the range over time as this "period" is something of a passion of his.
The pictures I'm sharing are of the first half dozen that I painted up and took some "proper" photos, and the next six that are still on their painting stands.
With the second batch I went for even more dramatic warpaint to give some variation.
I hope you enjoy them.
Just in case you were wondering, there will be more Dad's Army photos to follow - hopefully looking a bit smarter than my WIP pictures :-)
All the best,
