Flint and Feather Showcase: Huron Wendat Warband (Part 1 – Wood Armour)

Today (October 3, 2018) marks the official release date for Flint and Feather by Crucible Crush. This post is the first in a series of articles showcasing the Huron / Wendat War Party painted by my friend Dave Lamers. This boxed set contains 14 Warriors of the Wendat Confederacy / Huron Warriors miniatures.

Crucible Crush made these figures for their historical skirmish game Flint and Feather, but could easily be used for Blood and Plunder, Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago or any number of other games.

If you have not seen the miniatures for Flint and Feather, they are gorgeous. I have a number of articles about the game on this site. Crucible Crush’s webstore carries pictures of what they have and these minis are also available through North Star Military Figures under the “Crucible Crush” link for my readers overseas.

The First Four

I figured I would start with the four miniatures wearing armour. Perhaps these are your leaders or your more established warriors from the Huron / Wendat War Party Boxed set.

I find it so interesting that these warriors wore wooden armour before contact with Europeans.

The miniature that I think Dave did the best job on is the one with warpaint of a hand on his face.

The paint job on this miniature has got to be my favourite. Dave did a great job on him. For those looking, Dave does do Commission Painting. Email him if you want to inquire about his services.

My second favourite paint job is the man with the spear. I think I would use him as the leader of my group if these were my minis.

Some cool war paint on that guy!

I find this miniature the most interesting design wise.

There is a bit of a mold line that could have been removed before painting, but check out that facial expression. Nice!

And the back of that same miniature. Some nice details on these figures.

Wrapping it up…

This post is just a quick showcase of the first four miniatures from a fourteen miniature boxed set. In the pictures above, Crucible Crush made all of the miniatures, Dave Lamers painted them, and I pictured them on a Cigar Box Battle Mat. For those wondering, Dave does commission work.

As a note, most of my photography equipment has not yet come out yet since the move. Future pictures should look better. Sorry these ones are a little dark.

If you like what you see, be sure to check out Flint and Feather by Crucible Crush.
