6MMRPC 2.2 - The Last of the Mohicans

Here's my second update of the challenge and my first finished minis!  Oh and these are the first things I've painted since April, so glad to be getting back into the swing of things!

My father is who got me into wargaming in the first place many years ago.  He's never had a lot of time to put into the hobby raising us 8 kids, and during a lean year about 18 years ago, he sold off almost everything except his 1/72nd scale unassembled stuff.  

One of his favorite periods of history is The French & Indian War, and his favorite movie is Last of the Mohicans.  So, for Father's Day this year, I decided to paint up and present to him The Last of the Mohicans blister pack from Warlord Games.  Below you'll see how they came out.  I was actually a little disappointed in the quality of the sculpts...they'll do fine, but the detail was VERY shallow.  Anyways, I hope he likes them.

The Whole Set Together

Magua and Chingachgook 

Alice Munro and Hawkeye

Uncas and Cora Munro

I think they turned out ok.

2015 Painted Figures - 74
2015 Finished Terrain - 12
2015 Games - 1


  1. That's a great brush work - though I can see why you are disappointed with the sculpts. That's a real bummer. Is Warlord the only company who do that set?
    Which movie does your father like better - the one with Randolph Scott or the one with Daniel Day-Lewis?

  2. It's pretty cool having a set of models that match up with the movie. The sculpts are a bit ho hum in places. Cora has a pretty....strong...forehead. Fine looking paint jobs.

  3. The faces are indeed a bit strange on some of the figures. Nice paintjob though!

  4. I think that Dad will appreciate these regardless of how sharp their details are. They look great mate!
