In last week’s Primetime we looked at new American and British Regular Infantry, this week they are joined by Native Americans for the War of 1812.
Native Americans became involved in the conflict to secure British support for their own war against the United States. Led by Tecumseh, they played a key role in defending Canada. However, an American victory at the battle of the Thames, in October 1813, led to Tecumseh’s death and the break-up of his Native American coalition. For Native Americans, the outcome of the war was a catastrophe – they were never again able to find external allies or threaten to roll back the American frontier.
This pack of six figures display only subtle hints of their aboriginal heritage: large earrings, native hair styles and mukluk style boots. Subtle, but very appealing.
The North Star 1812 range is expanding nicely with well-designed and cast figures that go together to form great looking forces on the tabletop, idea for both Muskets and Tomahawks and other games that take in this fascinating conflict.
