Mexican Peons

I don't go to a lot of conventions, but at least every year in November I try to attend MilleniumCon hosted by the Lonestar Historical Miniatures Society here in Texas.  The convention takes place in Austin, Texas.  I had a pretty steady attendance record until last year when I was going through a house move and it was just not practical to try and go.  This year I will pick it back up and also have started plans to host a game.  I decided to run one of my growing projects The Mexican Revolution.

I still haven't decided completely on the scenario yet, but I do know I need more troops.  I have enough to make an enjoyable 2 player game, but I would like to target more around 5 players.  Since the Constitutionalistas (1913 revolutionaries) are most likely going to be the attackers I needed more of them.  I'm thinking 3 players are attacking and 2 players are the defenders.  

The bulk of the army were the poor peons who were fighting for the right to have some land to make a living.  So I plan to have 1 larger unit of peons for each Constitutionist player.  The peons mostly wore white, gray, and brown.  Very simple clothing so you won't see a lot of variation in the peons I will be painting.  Here's a batch of 16 I completed over the past couple of weeks.  All these are from Old Glory.





There's more on the painting table.  See you soon.
