These great figures are from North Star's Muskets and Tomahawk range of figures. This pack is Indian Warriors 2 and can be found at this link on North Star's Website or if you are in the United States you can get them from Brigade Games.
I now have 12 Mohegan figures which will give me flexibility with their deployment in my preferred rules Rebels and Patriots (Paid Link); two units of skirmishers or a Regular sized Native Warband. Depending on the force composition and scenario they will also either be Veterans or Aggressive. For my Native Forces I have chosen to mount them with the alternative 3, 2, 1 basing method for Rebels and Patriots (Paid Link) instead of mounting them all individually. With some slightly larger bases, it gives me a free hand in making them look more like vignettes of actual Mohegans in action. If you want to see the other Mohegan unit just click here: Native Mohegan American Native Unit for the French and Indian War.
The Mohegans are a Native American tribe historically based in present-day Connecticut; the majority are associated with the Mohegan Indian Tribe, a Federally recognized tribe living on a reservation in the eastern upper Thames River valley of south-central Connecticut.
The Mohegans were allies of the British Colonists and supported the British war effort during the French and Indian War as scouts and skirmishers. Eventually an entire company of Mohegans was organized and became part of Roger's Rangers (Rogers hired men solely on merit and shocked regular commanders with his use of Indians and freed slaves).
Very nicely done!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Sorry for the late response as I have been under the weather. The North Star figures are fun to paint.Delete
Neil, I always enjoy seeing a new batch of natives off your painting desk.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jonathan. I think eventually I will do another large Warband.Delete
They look great Neil. As you say, lovely figures and as usual, enhanced by a very nice paint job. I like the basing too....a few garden twigs us a technique I have used too on appropriate figures EG War of 1812ReplyDelete
Thanks. I have also said that a good base can cover up a multiple of sins!Delete
