FIW - A short Intermezzo

Manufacturers:  diverse
Scale:  28mm


On our trip to CRISIS we couldn´t resist to buy some lasercut models for FIW from 4Ground.
The models are really fantastic and can be fixed very easy.
Beside the tower I also bought two block houses you can´t see on the pictures.
But here´s a link to the homepage of 4Ground - it´s worth watching it.
They also have a very nice range of Western buildings which are also prepainted so you could use them quite after glueing.
You can also choose between 15mm and 28mm.
They also will release furniture and accessories which look very cool.


To give the building a better look (though it isn´t perfect as the base and also some weathering and greening isn´t done yet) I just built a small scenery with woods and some of my painted figures.
In the description of the pictures you´ll get some information about the different manufacturers.

British Infantry for SYW from Foundry.

Indians prepairing a raid on the blockhouse.

Indians from PerryMiniatures and also from Conquest.

The guy in the hunting shirt is a figure from the AWI-Range from FrontRank.
The Militia is from GaloppingMajor.
I bought the haystacks on CRISIS, but I don´t remember the name of the company. :(


Cheers
Mike

  3. Very nice Mike! Speaking of the FIW are you planning on doing some of your Conquest British?

    1. Hi Christopher,
      I want to paint up the figures of WargamesFoundry and also from GaloppingMajor first. They fit better than the Conquest minis. These are a little bit smaller than the other ones. WF and GM will also fit better to Redoubt and I know that you´ve already painted up your French Marines and your indians.
      Cheers

    2. Ahem, if you don´t mind I would like to "borrow" your idea of single basing the figures and preparing bigger ones with magnets for four figures. So we could use them also for Maurice.

    3. Of course Mike it's a practical approach to multi-tasking figures and happy you find it useful. It may not look quite as good, but you do gain flexibility which great when time is important. We have already seen that Maurice handles different base width sizes within a game so it should not pose a problem.
