After coming to an agreement I sent off my models, and with the quick turnaround and my renewed itch to play the period and Muskets and Tomahawks in particular I scouted the Artmaster Studio facebook page and found additional already painted up models for sale. This ended with me buying an additional 18 indians and 23 Highlanders!
Money was flying around that month for sure... but just as I was happy with the SAGA stuff I sent to Michael in Germany I was happy with the painting that Artmaster Studio provided for these minis. Suddenly my collection got boosted with over 100 painted miniatures. To paint that number of models today would take me a LOT of time which I sadly don't have any more.
Furthermore, with the additional models that I bought I am able to field a variety of configurations in both Indian, British and French army lists as well as having enough models to field two medium size forces to fight it out against each other which certainly will help to demo the game for interested friends :-D
