We set out with our 28mm French & Indian War range to create the sort of range we'd have loved to be able to buy: well researched with attention to correct period detail and feel, no "generic muskets", and no "generic Indians". We've been particularly delighted therefore, to find we've been getting some excellent reviews on "Flintlock and Tomahawk":
"Galloping Major... This looks like being a well-researched and executed range that will set the bench-mark for the French and Indian wars. It's about time someone did some decent Miliciens... "
Galloping Major French and Indian War figures
"This new range of 28mm figures are impressive. The sculptor obviously knows the period's 'material culture' well as they all have appropriate weapons like the fusil de chasse carried by the new Canadian Militia figs. No-one has really done decent Miliciens up til now and these are the best I've seen..."
Galloping Major Miliciens
"One of the drawbacks of a lot of F&I ranges tend to be the irregulars - usually the designer has some misplaced idea about coureurs de bois that look like Davey Crockett so it's particularly reassuring to see these Miliciens from Galloping Major looking spot on and in good poses too. Weaponry all correct - I am looking forward to seeing more of what promises to be a range to collect."
Flintlock and Tomahawk is a new and growing resource for:
"American warfare 1690-1815 in popular culture, art, in miniature and in movies."
Galloping Major Ltd is a company run by military history enthusiasts to design and produce 28mm figures and associated products for discerning wargamers and collectors.
Our ranges will continually expand, to provide the breadth, depth and choice that we believe are essential to building outstanding units, armies and collections. At Galloping Major the introduction of new ranges will not signal the abandoning of further expansion of existing ones, but these will continue to be added to "in parallel".
All our 28mm models are supplied as unpainted pewter castings.
We are providing painting guides for the various troop types, making additional use of the exhaustive research that goes into creating the models to assist with getting them ready to take the field. "Painting Mohawk Warriors","Painting Canadian Militia" and "Painting Huron Warriors" are available on the Painting Guides page.
As a thank you for your custom, we'll send out an additional special model with every order of four packs or more. For more details see the Soldiers Free page.
