Amazon Indians and Crates

This week it's a bit of a weird mix - Amazon Indian Archers from Copplestone Castings and a few terrain pieces in the form of crates (and barrels). 

The Amazon Indians are part of Copplestone's High Adventure range of miniatures, which I love. 

I did an assembly-line paint-job on them and I think they turned out alright.  The base was filled with white putty and painted green, with some static grass and tufts put on the top for good measure.  I'm thinking of a Amazon Expedition adventure in the future, so I picked up the Amazon Indian Chief blister as well as some Tupi Warriors and Archers.  They are all prepped and based, but it's a bit of a grind to plow through them all so they'll be done intermittently.

Next up is some terrain I finished a while ago - some crates to be used as an objective (or just scenery).

These are from a line of model railroad accessories from Hamm River.  I picked up the "Freight Pack" of 60 items at the bottom of the page.  A fellow blogger recommended this manufacturer, but I can't remember who - sorry! 

The castings were pretty good, with a bit of clean-up required.  On going to the page again in order to get the link, I see that they've got up some new products!  Hmmmm...looks like I may have to pick up some more stuff next month, as I've gone through my wargaming budget this month already.

While I was there, I purchased a rowboat as well - we'll see how that turns out!

  1. They look nice. Their eyes are shooting darts! Perhaps a little body paint would increase them looking the part of jungle warriors (if they are warriors).
