Nice, and like the colorings on the horse - curious as to the technique you used.

Now all you need is another 60 to 80 to 140 more and you'll be all set to go!   :D lol o_o

Blocked in with this paint, and then a thin wash of very dark brown. It gives a finish like oil paints for no effort whatsoever.

Thanks chaps, making steady progress. Fort's done with one Cavalry Troop to ride out from the gates, well on with the Indian village and bits of scatter...
but, fretting over a great pile of munchkins all clamoring at me to paint 'em!

Just posted this under Lord Raglan's thread but thought I'd add it here in case you miss that - and hope it is not too late to create lots of frustration on your part (already painted other colors).  Horse colors for the various troops of the 7th cavalry under Custer (bays come in various flavors):

From Boots & Saddles at the Little Bighorn by James S. Hutchins:
"A" Company--coal black horses
"E" Company--gray horses
"B," "D," "F," "I," and "L" Companies--bays
"H" Company--blood bays
"G" and "K" Companies--sorrels
"C" Company--light sorrels
"M" Company got the left overs, so they were a mix
Trumpeters rode grays; officers usually rode the same color horses as their company
Custer rode a horse called "Vic," a sorrel with four white feet and a blaze on the face.
Captain Miles Keogh rode "Commanche," described as a light bay or buckskin. Keogh commanded Company "I" a bay company.

Yep, knew about the Boy General aping the French, with colour coded horses in the Troops/Companys of his Regiment. Wasn't exactly something that endeared him to more than one of his Troops/Company Occifers though.

Just because the 'Boy General' didn't want 'em, doesn't mean nobody else does... 15mm Gatling Guns!
It's probably me being a div, but I can't seem to find any Gatling Guns and crews suitable for the Old West, can anyone help please?
Project is progressing slowly, despite real life rearing it's ugly head, should have some piccys later today to show.

Will the Pilgrims hear bugles in the afternoon before hordes of bronzed and war painted Warriors descend upon them?

Nice lot of painted stuff to add to the table!

Wear did you source your 'shaman' figure in the photo just under the teepees, please?

Nice touch with the native graveyard.  Also like Chief Lame Beaver - but that is an awfully thick base! 

I, for one, am full of anticipation for when you get to the point of posting game reports.  I expect they will be properly amusing - except for those who are hors de combat.

He's not a 15 mil munchkin, he's a small 20mm Atlantic figure, as are the totem poles and dead warriors. They come from the Atlantic 'Apache Camp' set. The Indian graveyard vignette will be islotaed,  high in the Black Hills, so I'm hoping the scale difference won't be too noticable on the table.
