Muskets & Tomahawks, eh?

More work on the French force for Muskets & Tomahawks. The force is about halfway done, painted between other projects.

The first pic is a Canadian militia unit. They have a nice look, with their buckskin clothes and mix of colors to make them all individuals. They’ll get expanded later with more members and a second unit for larger games.

The Compagnies Franches de la Marines members are the second pic. I painted them with a majority of white coats and blue trousers, as well as the ubiquitous sock cap. I wanted their more professional demeanor to be obvious, in contrast to the militia. However, being stationed in the wilds of the north they have adapted, so show a little bit of variation in the unit (a couple members wear buckskin coats instead of the white Marine uniform). The member with the tricorner hat is the unit’s leader. The pair facing left show off the back detail, with their various bags and powder satchels. It’s funny how relatively simple minies can get complicated with 3 bags and their straps on every guy.

Next up the rest of the Marines unit, as well as the Canadian Officer and the Natives.
