Kingdom of Hawaii - Island Militia

In my alternate history version of Hawaii, individual regional nobles are responsible for maintaining their militias. This is a holdover from the not so distant past of Hawaii where Kamehameha handed out land to his various warlords for stewardship.

The gamer meta-decision to do this was to add some variety and spice to my Hawaiian forces and keep the army from being boring to collect and paint. As such, I have been trying to track down interesting figures that can pass as island militia and I think the above gents will work nicely.

Though I do not have a positive ID on them, I do know they are Minifigs. They are nearly naked, wearing simple kilt-like skirts. they have an odd sort of pill box hat on their heads and an ammo pouch at the hips.



  1. Askaris? From some East African or Colonial range?

  2. Never seen them before but look like they will fit the bill.

  3. Wow, how did I miss this post? Interesting stuff Eli, thanks for sharing.
