New for South America

Just thought I would post an update of the Gauchos. This is the first three, another three coming along based on the pictures in the Osprey book.

The British are coming!

A couple of quick photos of the first casting of the British to fight for Bolivar against the Spanish. Advancing poses with command figures, wearing their oilskin covered shakos.

British Legion for South America

Moving up country, I have now got the next batch done, the British and Irish legion figures for Bolivar's war in Venezuela.

First up we have the rank and file in various advancing poses, wearing shakos with oilskin covers one is wearing a forage cap to add variety

 Next the command, as usual so as to fit in the packs, there is an ensign, officer, sergeant and drummer.
 Now, all the armies need command so, apart from the first two commanders in previous releases we have a couple of foot commanders, one Spanish the other Patriot, but I don't think it would matter if they were used for either side as the uniforms were almost identical anyway, especially after a few weeks in the field.
