Donnybrook - Redoubt Indian Torch Bearers



I bought these chaps pre-painted from Grubby Tank/Redoubt Minis at Broadside back in June. I had asked Andy to paint up a few, so he did. I was pretty lucky actually, I got to the stall just before Postie otherwise he'd have bought the lot for his FIW army!!!


Now they are all based up and added to my King William's War/Bacon's Rebellion Native army for Donnybrook shenanigans, (have I ever mentioned Donnybrook before??)


I think I might add some cotton wool or some kind of fibre to make them look like they're burning. Anyone got any good ideas how to do this?


That should be my Native force complete.............should?

  2. Good purchase Ray as they look great! I'm a big fan of Redoubt Indians as they have a real dangerous look to them.

    1. They do Chris, and although I didn't paint these, they are so easy to paint up.

    1. How did you do them, I'm thinking orc skins. It'll make the warpaint show better.

    2. Afraid I didn't paint them Phil. I picked them up at a show from Redoubt minis.

  6. You could add Cotton wool but then storage becomes a prob and they look fine without.

  8. Cracking Indians! Cannily snapped up. :). I think cotton wool would do the trick but a squirt of grey paint to knock it Vancouver from white perhaps?

    1. For my sins yes, but only 1 game. I seem to be a lot better at collecting the figures than playing games with the blighters!!!
