The Last of the Mohicans!

Strictly speaking this is F&IW rather than AWI, but these are gorgeous sculpts from Conquest and I will be using the figures in AWI games. The Munroe sisters can be civilian passers-by, whilst Hawkeye and his pals will be used as Indian chiefs or perhaps even skirmishing militia. The sculptor, Todd Harris, has really captured the look of the characters as they appear in the 1992 film. Magua is missing as he will have a post all to himself tomorrow - somehow I just don't think he deserves to be in the "family" shot. Uncas and the Munroes have sculpted eyebrows which I don't really like on 25mm figures - unless the sculpt is a portrait of Dennis Healey eyebrows at this scale just look too large. I certainly don't remember Jodhi May's eyebrows being this prominent in the film! I do, however, like the length of the guns - Hawkeye was known as "Long Rifle" and you can see why.
Painted August 2006. 6 figures (with Magua!).
