Here is La Meridiana’s 200 mm Great Lakes Warrior form 1763, during Pontiac’s Rebellion following the French and Indian War. He is wearing French military style clothing with native accessories. The figure is similar to one in Osprey’s Great Lakes Indians book. The tribe could be any of several from the region including the Ottowa. I used fly tying feathers since the molded ones werte too heavy.

hello Al,

Very interesting figure you've done. I love the use of coulours you've made. With the war paint it's difficult to assess the facial features of this guy. How are they ? They look to me a litle too soft.
Ilove the feather replacement !
