Re: Tecumsah

Quote: Colin D.
Hello,
Does anyone know if the Tecumsah set can also double for Native Americans who fought on the American side? I don't know if other tribes had a similar look to the Shawnee.

Colin D.,

I plan on using this set for my Eastern Indians / Woodland Indians to fight my Pioneers, Fort Detroit, AWI and up to and after the War of 1812. They look great the way they are, however, with a little research I've read that many of the Indians before going into battle took off their shirts and covered themselves in warpaint for power and intimidation. I'll suggest to you what I did, so you can make up your own mind:


Go to Wikipedia.org
Enter "War of 1812"
Look to the right side and go down until you see the following (you can click on all of the links to see the Indians) ...
After that, Go to Google / Images and look up each tribes Warriors ...
(Wikipedia / War of 1812 / then choose your Tribe / then Google Images)
