Last, and by every which way least, the only Indian with more bad medicine than poor old Black Kettle...

The Great Lame Beaver!

Thanks, that's very kind.
I couldn't resist adding some Atlantic figures, their daft cartoony looks, are perfect for a Hollywood Cavalry and Indian collection!
The Indian graveyard and prancing Medicine Man will be high in the Black hills... so them looking a tad bigger than the 15mm 'munchkins' won't be so noticeable.

:-D

Wonderful work so far... I especially like your paintjob on the last figure. It looks excellent!

He might look pretty... but can he fight!!!???

Previous incarnations of The Great lame Beaver have proved sadly lacking in the 'get stuck in' department!
Here's one I made earlier in 28mm... he proved about as useful as a chocolate teapot!

“Tis the gallant 7th Cavalry
It matters not where we are going
Such you’ll surely say as we march away;
And our band plays Garryowen."

Fine work on this troop of the 7th cavalry...and their wooden fortress. This project looks to be off to a good start!

Lots of adventures await chief Lame Beaver. I had a fort Apache as a kid though I confess to liking my castle a bit more. My Lincoln logs were perfect for making outbuildings where I could stash my brass cannon collected from visiting historical sites. I need project for this year myself, finishing what I started might be good but can one ever "finish" a Napoleonic army? I rather hope not actually.

Need a bit of advice please chaps. Just gleaned a couple of Gatling Guns, to help the Cavalry repel the savage Redskin hordes! Where the guns crew Artillery men, or would they have been manned by Infantrymen? Need to know for the facing colours and wotnot. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A 'wot if' that's gone on, almost from the time of that legendary day on the Little Bighorn...
would taking some of these have made a difference?

That's a good looking array of miniature artillery, nice work!

Would it have made any difference at Little Bighorn? Probably not, but lined up outside that fort...well, that's a different matter. :-D :yeah:
