Civilians and Settlers for the French and Indian War

Work has been extremely busy lately which is why I've been silent for a few weeks ... however fear not as progress has been made on several fronts!  I've been fortunate enough to have another large wave (perhaps my final wave) of French and Indian War miniatures completed for Muskets and Tomahawks.  I'll be making a separate post for my French reinforcements that are done now - this post is focused on the civilians and settlers that will be filling out my local habitations - both native and not.  Once again a special thanks to Artmaster Studio for great work.

First up, those awesome Perry Miniatures wagons that are available.  I just had to have these are they are a excellent added touch to any battlefield.  I have three wagons of various sizes that I'll use for scenarios (escort for example) or to just add some flavor to the local battlefield.

I've added 12 native "civilians" as well (as I have a few long houses and will do up a small native settlement).

My american colonists are led by the Mayor (local leader) and his lovely wife.

Rounding out the american colonists are 20 of the sort you'd find around town or on a farm.  These are a mix of Conquest Miniatures and Perry Miniatures.

I'm working through basing a new French regiment of regulars (La Reine) and an officer and two units of Canadian Militia (Coureur des Bois).  I'm also doing a large batch of Bolt Action vehicles for my German and British armies (~15 vehicles), and of course more terrain - so lots to come!

    1. Very happy with them ... although Artmaster Studio is to thank for the painting ... I've been working on my Bolt Action stuff and basing the units.

  2. My, you have been busy. Superb painting on the wagons and civilians, which will really enhance the look of your table.
    Look forward to seeing all those WW2 vehicles.
    Cheers,

    1. It helps when you send stuff to Artmaster Studio to have them paint it while you are also painting stuff ... I've been focused on my Bolt Action stuff while they finish up my F&I figures ... all I have to do is base them.
