US ARMY APACHE SCOUT


Hello everyone, my latest offering is an add on for my 15/18mm US Cavalry troop, he is an Apache US Army scout, recruited for his specialist skill in tracking and spotting, he is dressed in standard US Army gear, Blue army jacket and red bandanna, he also wears his traditional Apache gear from the waist down, this scout is armed with a big bore Buffalo rifle.




The miniature is from MiniFigs (UK), he is 15mm in scale which actually makes him a touch smaller than the rest of the crew, but it wasn't enough to bother me, I think he fits in just fine with the rest of the troop, painting wise he was a little challenging as the detail levels were quite shallow, but I think he turned out really well.


Just as a side note I will be jetting off on holidays for two weeks, my next post will be in mid February, for those who are curious I will be landing in Bali for a week and then off to Thailand for another week before returning back to Australia, are there any gamers in Bali or Thailand ???

Very nice. You've got a hell of allot of detail on a 15mm figure.

Nice work mate, I'm finding 15mm figures quite a challenge to paint.

He looks excellent, I think my days of painting 28mm figures, let alone 15mm are well past.

You've been very quiet recently. Hope everything's okay.

@Irqan - thanks for the comment
@Simon - It helps that these are on the larger side of fifteen.
@Dean - thanks and the trip was fantastic.
@Shinto - cheers SK!
@Zabadak - thanks mate.
@Legion - Just been busy organising the trip and then trying to get fit for the trip and I have so many more blogs to visit these days, so I dont get around to all of them, hopefully a normal service will resume ASAP.
