Apache land
« on: June 08, 2018, 08:48:02 PM »
Hello all

The start of a new project.
Apaches to fight against the mexicans around 1830´s.
After search a bit for their look and weapons i decided to convert some for this period since the existing miniatures are mainly 1860´s forward.

I start with a foundry one not converted and a foundry swashbuclers marroon converted with some green stuff.
As always, comments and ideas are welcome.

Just started reading about the Apache from this period, your models look just like I imagined them ferocious varmints!

This is really really nice  :-* Great work!

I always wanted to sculpt Apache from that period, even before I started doing the plain indians  ;) Now I want to again  :D

Apaches sculped by you ? They would be most welcome. ;)
I always liked apaches above all other tribes. I will also try to convert some females and children as well. Lets see how this project goes. :)
