The OMM were natural patriots and throughout the AWI skirmished with British loyalists as well as Cherokee along the Appalachian frontier. In September 1780 an OMM force of just over 1,000 gathered together in response to a proclamation by Major Ferguson that he would attack their settlements if they did not lay down arms against the Crown. So began a march over the Appalachians that ended with the encirclement and defeat of Ferguson's force of loyalists at the battle of King's Mountain. Most of Ferguson's force of 1,000 were killed or captured while the OMM suffered only 28 killed and 62 wounded. The destruction of Ferguson's force led Cornwallis to abandon his advance into North Carolina.
The KMM range has 16 figures in various poses that take separate heads from a vast selection. I haven't yet counted the number of different heads, but there are about 30 sets of varying headgear. Those sets include things like jockey caps and dragoon helmets which you wouldn't use for OMM but are instead designed for KMM's forthcoming Continental figures. So for the OMM you have instead lots of bearded heads with hats, caps, bonnets, bandanas etc which create a very distinct look. Some heads suit some bodies better than others, so you need to experiment a bit before you find the best fits. But these are very useful figures than can be adapted for all kinds of things. I have built a first unit of 12 figures, based in pairs on standard "British Grenadier!" skirmish bases. As well as using these figures for the OMM themselves, I have in mind a more generic frontier militia unit which I would use for Guilford Courthouse and other southern battles. I tried to keep the colours fairly muted, although I allowed myself a bit or artistic licence to introduce some colour onto the leggings.
