I am doing  a long delayed project with ACW proxies... in fact I no longer paint them myself... but I do still  make the conversions and small modifications... like removing sabers and scabbards etc. Has anyone done the same? would be glad to know. adb@andorra.ad

I never build the opposition... especially in colonial affairs... but what are the best proxies for native americans?... gauls?... numidians?... would be glad to hear comments about that... ( I understand Peter  lack of comercial interest...). Cheers.

Why not use the Native Americans in the AWI range?

Perhaps because the AWI ones are forest Indians, rather than the Plains Indians encountered at Little Big Horn?  The latter would be Horse/pony mounted, the former on foot.

This range is on the horizon.  How far away that horizon has yet to be determined, but it will be happening.

Not for me to say what to do with your ranges or business... but it only needs the Native Americans mounted and on foot... some tipis would be a must but not strictly necessary... all the rest is existant on the ACW with hats... no problem at all with the 7th and the mule pack.... Maybe a suggestion comes to mind, why not make a list of proxies for the periods without an specific range?... most of us will work solutions alone but I know a lot of lazy people... just a thought....
