Las Soldaderas

One of the iconic images of the Mexican Revolution is that of the Soldadera.  Women camp followers that eventually took up arms and joined the fight.  These women joined the fighting for a variety of reasons, for example, some to help protect their sons and husbands, others for revenge, and some just wanted to fight.  Whatever their reasons, they were there in the fighting and it's only fair to add some to my army.  These are the four soldadera figures available from Gringo 40's miniatures.





I forgot to spray these with DullCoat before taking the pictures so they are a little shiny looking.  D'oh!

These were some nice looking miniatures and I was really happy to be able to add some variety to my Villista army.
