The 1/32 plastic manufacturer, Armies in Plastic, is releasing a new Roger's Ranger's right now. I haven't painted 1/32 in quite a long time, but these French and Indian War toy soldiers are really calling to me. I once had a set of Barzso 1/32 rangers and woodland Indians. I wasn't a fan of the resin, and I didn't like the innaccurate movie-inspired costume for the Rangers.

Major Robert Rogers
This is a 28mm Major Robert Rogers, sculpted by Dixon Miniatures and painted by me. After my visit to Fort Ticonderoga, I have been inspired to paint up some units of French regulars. I have my eye on Old Glory Miniatures' French and Indian War line. There aren't too many painted photos of these models visible on the web, so I hope to fill the void. I don't have a ruleset in mind. I think I'm simply going to paint little 10-man units for display. I am restraining myself on making any purchases before my birthday at the end of September! In any case, I can't paint anything until October, because my work schedule has squished my free time.
