WHAT'S IN THE BOX?!

Nice to have a small footprint for this project! All the player warband figures in one 1.75l Really Useful Box, and the wild beasts that may appear as a random encounter in another of the same size.

Now the hex-based terrain is growing in size, BUT there's nothing saying I can't go all-in on cardboard tiles, either.

May be something to consider!

Progress continues with the 18th century New France micro-sized skirmish project.

Got all the assorted critters painted (somewhat hastily and poorly, but painted nontheless!) and based with aquarium sands and covered with a mix of Modge Podge and craft glue.

Plants and grasses await, then I'll have the following good-sized menagerie for my roving parties to bump into:

- 2 bears
- 2 mountain lions
- 3 boars
- 3 buffalo
- 2 deer (plus one fawn)
- 2 bull elk
- 2 wolves (one of whom being a repurposed Reaper undead zombie wolf... sssshhh)

Keep it up - very inspiring work! The skin tone issue could probably be argued by many. I say go with what feels right to you. Just remember the "formula" you used (and buy extra pots of that paint!). Over the years of painting my French & Indian War figures, I saw my base color disappear from production more than once.

Thanks! The plan is for a VERY lightweight, beer and pretzels game. Inspired in part by GW's Warhammer Underworlds and Mantic's Riot Quest in complexity, but ported and adapted to this historical context. Something I can easily pick up and travel with to play with friends.

Good points and a lesson I've already had to learn the hard way, haha! I'm keeping recipes jotted down in a master project log document.

Tonight's tabletop gaming project: making a hex grid on felt, followed by some terrain work (not shown here) for my c. 1750s New France + Osage Nation skirmish project.

Pretty cool.  The Wild Boar are probably an anachronism, but the look good so…

I am quite impressed with your results on these figures and especially the animals.  I have a variety of skin tones among the large numbers of F&IW, Apachees, etc. Indians/Native Americans I have painted and accumulated over the years.  A little variety is good as long as they look good in games!  I look forward to seeing more on your project and games.  Thank you!
