Hurons!



The final part of my French wilderness force for Sharp Practice 2 is of course a couple of units of Huron allies. I'm really looking forward to using these in SP2 - the rules for moveable deployment zones should give their opponents something to think about.



These were lovely figures to paint, although very time consuming due to the individual details. Most of the figures are from the Woodland Indians box set put out by Warlord (which are actually Conquest Miniatures figures), with six figures from Northstar. Here's a stack of photos - I hope you enjoy them.

  1. Your war paint is excellent! Your work tempts me to take a hard look at my non-embellished Natives and give them a face lift.

  2. Everyone knows that Mugwa was an evil bully and that Chingachgook and Uncas (and Hawkeye) were awesome. Despite that, you've made these Hurons look awesome! I've yet to tackle my Mohawks

  3. Very nice painting and a great looking warband. What is the base colour for the skin - mine always comes out way too dark?

    1. Thanks Dannoc. I used Army Painter Tanned Flesh, mixed with a touch of Vallejo Mahogany Brown and Red Leather as the base colour, then highlighted with Tanned Flesh and Red Leather. They are wearing so much body paint that all of that was highlighted as well.

  5. Great work, French Indian Wars ... AWI and Sharp Practice II is a tempting big 28mm but small figure count ... tempting
