loyalist camp I posted about earlier. Conquest do two Magua figures. The first is from a pack of "Last of the Mohicans" characters, and shows Magua in the outfit he wore when leading a British column, with Colonel Munro's daughters, into an ambush. A photo of that figure is below for comparison (and the relevant blog post is here). The second figure shows Magua celebrating his slaughter of Munro and other British troops after they leave Fort William Henry. I started painting this figure as a generic Indian before I realised that there was no excuse for not painting Magua as he appears in the film (see above).
For the flesh I used Foundry's "Native American Flesh" 120 palette, which I'd previously tried out on the figures of Tecumseh and his brother. Before that I had used my standard flesh palette, and this produced figures with rather "white" skin. The colours of the clothing and equipment are not 100% accurate when compared to the photo of Wes Studi, but I think the overall effect is pretty similar. I perhaps could have done with a bit more black paint on the right upper arm. The black zig-zags are on his head, but are difficult to see in the photos, and I tried to add that shaven-headed look with a thin grey wash. I base chieftains on 2 pence pieces and "rank and file" on square bases, so it's easier to tell who's who in games. Magua perhaps deserves to be based as a chief, but I have enough of those (and indeed my other Magua is based that way) so he's just another brave.
