Leaving aside the near total absence of date palms in Mato Grosso do Sul and eastern Paraguay, they do indeed look superb.  :-*

Yeah, they are absolutely brilliant sculpts. I'm hanging onto my cash though! So very tempting but I know they would just join the lead planet!!

Folks,

For those interested in gaming the The Great Paraguayan War using the new Perry Miniatures range of figures, or any other figures for that matter, I have compiled some thoughts on the topic and am providing complete Rebels & Patriots army lists for the respective forces of each side ie Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.

Please feel free to use, amend, comment if you feel they are of use or could be tweaked if you feel something is amiss.

Regards

Happy Wanderer

Same. I'm looking forward to picking up an initial order soon.

And I'm loving the fact they've done uniform guides. Really makes it less daunting.

You’re best bet nowadays for the metal ranges is to just order direct from the Perry website. Won’t have any issues with what you want being “out of stock” and price-wise is often cheaper even with shipping.

Same here - I've ordered quite a bit from them and it's always been prompt and reliable service to the US.

Ditto this, I've ordered directly from them at least once and didn't have any problems.  Don't expect 2 day shipping or anything  lol. but if memory serves it was fairly quick turnaround and they even threw in a bonus metal fig!
