    Thanks guys I was actually going to do a 2-figure vignette from another print which I saw in a magazine,but I can't seem to find the magazine again It shows 2 Native American Indians,one kneeling,one standing,beside a creek looking at a discarded mantlepiece clock stuck in the creek bed and is entitled "A Matter Of Time".Have you guys seen it before Anyhow,I was waiting for this figure from S & T for quite awhile now,so I thought it would make a nice break while I search for the print concerned again.Cheers !

    Hey Kenneth,

    If you would like to see this vignette look at the great job that Alan and Marion have done. http://www.mb-miniatures.com/images/Marion...dians7klein.jpg

    You may also want to wait and see what is coming from a manufacturer here in the US. 54 mm :)

    I still think it is a great print and I look forward to seeing your interpation. (y)

    Kenneth, If I may point out something. The mohawk haircuts you have given your warriors are more ready for a cheesy Hollywood epic or a punk rock concert. What they need are "scalplocks" this is a round section of hair at the back of the head that was tied in braids. Beads, feathers, trade items or other decorations could be attached to them. If you have any further info you need let me know I have a lot of this kind of stuff.~Gary

    Thanks for pointing the error of the mohawks out to me,Gary,but the mock-ups were actually of the stock "Indian" heads from the Preiser figure set.I've already shaved off the horrible mohawks and am in the process of sculpting the scalp-locks that you have so kindly mentioned in your post.Since you so kindly offered,gary,can you offer some typical ear decorations that these Natives might have worn during this time period ? Thanks once again for the heads-up and I hope to post more stuff soon.Cheers Kenneth.
