Hi friends :)
continues the work to complete this hypotetical set.
I Added 4 more figures and and I would like to finish everything with two other figures, which figure would you like to see? I thought of one who loads the rifle and another soldier who shoots up (or one in rapid march with the rifle on his shoulder or with rifle and ax).
Let me Know, i wait your comments and suggestions about uniforms,proportion and poses
(as you can see I did a marines with a hooded uniform,which I found in some illustrations - as an outpost uniform?!-)

Ciao
Giuseppe Condorelli

This is a set that I could buy...
12/15 figures would be the best and, if the final casting id not too diferent from the masters, I'll take 2 sets.
Maybe the Tomahawk is too big...

thank you all for the support
@despertaferro your observation led me to change the tomohawk (no worries, the hand looks small because it is on a different plane - further away - than the soldier but in any case I will enlarge it by a few half millimeters)
someone told me that some pieces are too thin or not very muscular and I'm thinking about them because I like them for proportion

as you can see every comment is received and studied to improve the set

Let me know what other poses you'd like to see in this set and I'll try to sculpt them(or other suggestion).

Hi...
The tomahawk looks much better now.
Poses... As far I know, most of the time these guys fought mixed with Indians and following guerrilla tactics. Firing from cover, scouting, directing Indian fire, marching trough wilderness or rough country... The ones you made so far looks terrific to me...
I'm plannig to make my army mixing them with the Italeri Indians
