Hinchliffe AWI natives (codes AW11 and 12). I really laboured over these chaps - i've never been any good at large areas of bare flesh (insert your own punchline), nor warpaint. It also has to be said they are not the best of Gilder's work.

The Indian Department officer began life as the American standard bearer - he thanked me profusely for his free transfer to the good guys.

For my money Steve Hezzlewood's FIW natives for Pax Britannica/RSM remain the best available in 25mm - more of which anon.

Hezzlewood sculpted the Hinchcliffe AWI X-range of figures (officer and soldier standing at attention)

Nice job especially for someone who 'struggled' with the technique

Lovely work - those Injun's look pretty scary!

Nice work as ever.

I do agree about Hezzlewood's injuns. I've painted a few over the past 3-4 years and they look the business, especially en masse.
