French Indian War Natives and White Girls

I live in Calgary and we've been having some of the worst flooding in decades (or so the news says).  The downtown core was shut down Friday, as the river was flooding and they had closed the bridges. 

This is a picture of the iconic Saddledome....

After politely declining to work at another bank branch for the day (along with everyone else at the branch), I decided to get some bottled water and other essentials and....paint.  :-)

Here are some FIW natives for my growing French force:

I'm not at all happy with how the white girls came out - I should have shaded them with a darker colour than try and wash them.  Argh!  Oh well, that's what I get for trying to rush things.  :-(

All of the miniatures are from Conquest Miniatures, the girls being from the Last of the Mohicans pack.  The flowers are from my recent order of Tajima tufts.

I've been working on some Fallschirmjager still, a recoilless gun and some basic jagers.  I might paint some Couriers de Bois next to mix things up a bit.  I also ordered some of the Conquest French Regulars - I have lots of Old Glory ones, but I've always wanted to see how they rank up (get it?!?!) next to the Conquest regulars (which took forever to come out).


  1. Sorry to hear about all the flooding, but it's always nice to just sit down and get some painting done. Looking good!

  2. Flooding allows you to paint some beautiful figures...
