Tenskwatawa, the Shawnee Prophet, Conquest Miniatures

Tenskwatawa, (1775 – 1836) was the brother of the famous Tecumseh. Tenskwatawa was himself a religious and political leader of the Shawnee tribe. This figure is from the Eastern Woodland Indians range by Conquest Miniatures, Item Number: 500-012. The two figure set also contains Tecumseh.

Regulars readers may be even more surprised to know I actually plan the colour schemes of these figures such as using predominately reds and blues for the materials. The feathers are painted to represent eagle feathers and the animal skins are painted to represent black bearskin as this species (I believe) inhabit that particular part of the world.
