The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...

More FaIW musings.

So I finally finished another piece for the Muskets and Tomahawks games.
This time it's an Ox-cart.
The figures are Old Glory, the Ox-cart itself is by 4-Ground and the Oxen and resin cast loads were along with the rest acquired from Colonel Bill's stand at Albannich show, Dumfries, in March.
It's taken a while, but I am quite pleased with the result.

These boys are all set to trudge through a game and bring (or fail to bring) much needed supplies to the hard pressed soldiery.

I am particularly pleased with tail-end charlie here, with his eye-patch and his clay pipe. If this were a film, obviously he would be the first one to get an arrow or a tomahawk in his vitals, probably long before anyone else realises what is going on.

  1. That looks truly excellent, Dave! just about to make a start on some scenery that should be perfect for an ambush scenario...
