I am working on a Christian Cameron Red Knight project but also interested in French Indian wars. 

 

Do people know please of a range of Eastern native Americans, 18th century or earlier, that:

 

Don't have many or any guns

And

Are 'larger scale'? They don't need to be GW scale but not really small 'true 28mm'.

 

I think Warlord Games and Flint and Feather would be out for that reason but would be happy to be proved wrong. 

 

Any and all advice welcome, thank you

Larger scale like 32mm/40mm?

But still..not toys?

32mm would be too big, ideally something heroic 28mm/Frostgrave /Perry.

/mantic/old warhammer scale. Its just that there are lots of gorgeous ranges that will likely be too small.

Is Warlord too small?

They have a nice range of French Indian War Minis.

I always thought they were compatible with KOW and Warhammer figs?

IIRC the Going Native line from Paymaster Games (who ran several Kickstarters that you will find in the corresponding forum section) matches up well with Perry. I'm not sure if they have any Eastern natives, though; you'd have to check their site.

Thank you everyone.

 

Whenever I've seen Warlord indians in shops they've seemed small. There are the new mohawk minis they've done for.the mythic America game but am not sure of the size. 

 

I may need to buy a few samples of things to l

Footsore has 28mm Skraelings.  I kind of thought Gripping Beast had some but haven't found them.

Thank you will give them a look.

From my experience of WW2 minis, Warlord's stuff is much larger and more "heroic" than Perry's  but with these more niche ranges you don't know if they were bought from a small company or they are using a new sculptor or what.

Warlord’s Indians are the old Conquest Games Indians they are excellent. They look small compared to Warlord’s regular lines because they are closer to 1/56th scale which is a good match to Perry.

Perry Miniatures does some good ones.

 

If I remember right and you get lucky, Wargames Factory did a decent plastic set at one point you might be able to find.

In theory that set should be available from Warlord as well.

If it's one of the ones they re-released.

 

I've been waiting for them to let the Amazon's back out for a few years now

One great way to find mini ranges you never knew about is to pick up a wargaming magazine, especially since conventions are in short supply these days. If they feature an era or battle you are interested, you're sure to find some great minis painted up in the article. I got a copy of Wargames Illustrated last month because it featured really neat Tlingit minis. A west coast nation fighting Russians. For further inspiration, check out Nations at War, a program that airs in Canada on APTN. It features native peoples' historical bat reps. So many ideas for skirmish battles I'd never heard of before.
