More Goodies from Historicon

I painted a few more goodies i picked up at Historicon since last friday.

The first is a foot bridge I picked from from Acheson Creations. Now the end peices were on a base taht was a little thick for me, so i sanded the edges down a bit, glued them to MDF, and then used wood filler to smooth out the slope.  The whole thing is about 13 inches long( 10 inches without MDF) and the can be used on rivers 4" wide or less.  the width of the bridge is about 3.75".   I also picked up a few of their $0.50 pieces, most notably horizontal log barriers and a pair of stone-lined camp fires.  I have to say, the more i see if Acheson Creations, the more i like! hopefully they get their 28mm Grizzly bears molded soon.

the 2nd set of items are More miniatures From Eric at Conquest Miniatures.  This time, it's 2 more units of 8 Compagnies Franches de la Marine.  If you haven't heard, Conquest miniatures are absolutely fantastic.  Especially the Native Americans.  I own almost 100 conquest miniatures now(plus 3 of his longhouses), and when I can afford it, I'll be grabbing 3 or 4 packs each of his  marching French and British Regulars.

And finally, I thought I'd show a picture of my  full Native American  collection with the village as well. 48 Indians and 5 big men total.
