In January more Spanish troops will be ready.

"Rebeldes cubanos y filipinos" as well as USA troops are also going to be realese

very interesting..i understand that a company must be supported buying their available stuff to allow investments on new subjects..but some of us , like me, already have some Spanish Inf. (Tiger, OG) ..while those possibly available "filipinos" rebels could be very very interested...not only Moros but also other types..very different from the Moros that fought also Vs US Troops (Saamar ecc...)...also the regular Filipinos in spanish service are very interested with their conical /vietnamese type hat....and, speaking about Filipinos..the Aguinaldo  "regular" rebel army , equipped and dressed with a Spanish look but more colourful (red trousers ecc...) that fought VS th new US masters is very interesting:

Hi guys, Javier Gomez aka El Mercenario here! Thanks for your nice words on our figures, I'l glad you like them! If you have any question on our company, future releases (that will include Filipinos, Mambises and Americans) or anything else, don't hesitate to ask me! Some pics of our latest releases, Spanish infantry skirmishing on campaign. Ah, our website and online store are already in English!

Not really, we have a painting tutorial at our website (not sure if I can add the link, but it's easy to find)

They look lovely, but painting a whole unit of them would make me go blind, mad or crosseyed. But that's me.

That "painterly" style on the faces especially is very interesting to me. I might have a go at that, as I am certainly no good at the "soft blending" style.

That sort of painstaking painting is essential for promo shots like these, but I'm sure the quality of these figures would shine through even with a good, wargame standard paint-job.

In fact my good friend Andres Amian, Warlord Games painter, is experimenting with a fast painting method involving Space Wolf Grey Army Painter spray primer!

And Merry Christmas to you all!

I'm sure you can dispense with the stripes, and then the paint job is fairly simple. And even the given method is simpler than trying to paint actual full pinstripes. I think it's a good compromise.

Looking forward to see what comes next! Americans soon I hope?  I am already working on some lists for Sharp Practice 2 for these figures. I also see you have some terrain available for the Philippines. I hope you will come out with some Spanish Blockhouses as well for Cuba!

Cheers

Great to hear on both accounts.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.
