More Apache

Here we have a couple more Apache, completed over the past week.

This warrior is particularly well armed with a repeating rifle and a six gun! Wearing a traditional war cap on his head.

This warrior is holding in his left hand a flop head club, or traditional war club.

The reasoning behind starting the Apache was to use them in 'Legends_of_the_Old_West'. Quite a few of the usual club attendees, have Old West figures and the indomitable Capt. Nolan has a large collection of Cowboys, Mexicans and a very nice set of frontier buildings. The Apache fought against the Americans (Anglo-Americans) and the Mexicans, so it made sense to paint up a force of these Native Americans.
