Muskets and Tomahawks
« on: April 22, 2012, 08:24:26 AM »
I collected the first stock of the new game Muskets and Tomahawks at Salute yesterday.

Hundreds were sold on the day, so there are a few out there already!

Regards
Nick

So this means there are more available for sale and immediate shipment?

Note: Nevermind. Just saw the twitter feed and that it's in stock. Order placed...

The boys will be struggling to put everything back in stock tomorrow from Salute, but I'll personally make sure the M&T pre-orders get sent.

Mike Owen is sculpting the official range, 3 weeks for the first releases we hope. The first sets will be an Indian Warband, a British Wilderness Force and a French Wilderness Force, each set about 23 figures.

Crusader Miniatures have just released some Woodland Indians as well, no pictures just yet but I think we all know the quality of Mark Sims design.

any chance there will be Indians with bows pack and maybe one pack with hand weapons?
I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it anymore and what is it seems weird and scary.

First game write up from last night:
http://studiotomahawk.freeforums.org/the-war-party-s-blooding-t1312.html

Hi Rich, at the risk of sounding like an overly pedantic jerk, I'd just like to point out a few things from the dialog in your AAR. 

Totem Poles are used in the Pacific North West by the natives out that way, 3,000 miles from the Eastern tribes involved in the FIW.  Things like blood brothers and using words like braves were used in old movies, but don't really have any bearing on the FIW.

That being said if you are after a 'pulpy' version of an Indian War, carry on.  I enjoy listening to you on the M&M podcast and you seem to enjoy the 'game' aspect more than being overly concerned with the historical details at times, much like myself.  But I thought I'd pop this in there if you were interested in getting involved in the period more heavily.  I've chosen to delve into the details of the FIW but choose to have my VBCW as 'pulpy' as fresh squeezed OJ.  If I were to write and AAR report for VBCW, I'm sure I'd include things that would make a knowledgeable person cringe.

No worries. I don't know the language to use the correct words so was approximating with English words. I think there is possibly more to worry about realistically wise with my narrative than the few things you have raised.

:)

Oh just so you know, you did come across as a overly pedantic jerk.

Thanks mate, knew that was a risk.   ;)  As a Native American living in the area of the FIW, just doing my part to dispell some stereotypes.  Otherwise you'll have folks talking about "feather not dot" indians next.   :)
