French and Indian War: Woodland Indians from AW Miniatures

The relative newcomer AW Miniatures has been at it for about ten years, producing unique ranges of metal figures for familiar periods. This largely one-man, UK company has put out lines for the American Civil War, the Samurai period, the Seven Years War, the Zulu War and the Sudan War.

The French and Indian War line is fairly broad, and I have a number of their figures to my collection. The Indian War Party pack offers a nice mix of 20 Indians, including bowmen and figures armed with muskets and hatchets. The bowmen are a bit on the chucky side and the other figures are a bit thinner, all falling within a 25 to 28mm scale.

Many of the casts are obviously modelled off a similar base sculpt with additions and alterations to details like headwear. The figures on the run come with arms to be glued on, allowing for a bit of variety in final poses. To create some additional personality, I chose to empahisize body paint on my models which fit in nicely with my other units on the table.
