    Can't disagree with TV and Victorian 'noble savage' reductionism, nor modern cultural appropriation and I'm certainly not disparaging indigenous culture... from North America or anywhere else (and the Winnebago quip doesn't do that).

    But as asked earlier, live links to sources would be useful (the Canadian Encyclopedia and links above don't help much in terms of costume etc).

    Don't get me started on so-called "cultural appropriation": A favourite term of perpetually offended, politically-correct, paranoid snowflakes with overactive imaginations, eager to find fault in stuff that no-one in their right mind would have a problem with and in so doing create tensions, problems and resentments where none existed before. This nonsense started around the turn of the millennium, but seems to have intensified in recent years and shows no sign of abating, with kids playing Cowboys & Indians or holidaymakers buying sombreros now being branded nasty racists or neo-colonialists or whatever.

    I dislike contributing towards thread derailment, but that shit is like red rag to a bull with me. So to get back on track with the subject of the thread, that groundwork and waterfall are fantastic, and I'm really looking forward to the finished result with the figure and the big cat.

    Well, no matter the outcome, this dio is always "wrong". If the indian kills the cat the indian is an animal-hating-meat-addicted-male-chauvinist pig. If, however, the cat kills the indian he is a member of the bloodthursty murdering mob that whiped out the natives of America.
    And now...back to figurepainting!!

    Added more scenery and spashed the first paint on the furry-creature-resembling-a-mountain-lion.

    Thanks Mobo. Just got an app from my friend Frank ( from Wendy's Miniatures' ) that my "Hunters at Halt" has arrived. Your version inspired me a lot. I also love their "Gray beard,lusty heart' vignette.

    Nice progress Hans, nice to see this thread back where it should be, which is about the scene you are creating.

    Lovely vignette! (y)

    And you work with acrylics, right? At least based on the small flasks visible on your bechwork, behind the vignette. Amazing!


    Cheers!

    This just keeps getting better and better.
    I've used "Magic Water" from Unreal Details in the past;
    https://www.unrealdetails.com/
    And have recently tried "Aqua Magic" from Deluxe Materials;
    https://deluxematerials.co.uk/products/aqua-magic-250ml

    Both are excellent modelling aids, but I'm always looking for more options. So how long does the Vallejo products take to clarify then Hans?

    Thanks for all the compliments, guys.
    Dolf; I used to work with acryl only but after reading all the info here on PF I now use oil & acrylics
    Harry ; it takes about a day to dry depending on how thick the layers are. With the still water it's best to work in thin layers.

    Sounds a bit like Woodland Scenics "Realistic Water" then. It also seems to take a day or two to clarify.
    Magic Water is crystal clear when poured, unless you choose to tint it, and is great for still water. To depict running water, I've started using Aqua Magic for depth and then a layer or two of Magic water on top.
    I'm now pretty interested in giving the Vallejo products a try for waterfall features though - your one certainly looks convincing.
