My limited knowledge puts Pershng's troops in khaki uniforms rather than this rather natty blue, but other than that are they pretty similar?

Here is a Gringo40's US cavalryman for the Mexican revolution:



Looks pretty darn close...

Most folks would use Tiger Minis... but personally I don't like them very much.

those blue uniformed US guys both from 1898 and Gringo are OK for SAW, Filippino subsequent revolt VS Us Occupation troops, Boxer Rebellion and , at least for the first years, also VS Moros..but not for Pershing Punitive Expedition across Rio Grande...that took place  practically at the beginning of WW1...so mounted troops and with different kaki uniform, different equipment, different weapons and different headgear:

Brigade Games do three packs of U.S troops in the correct uniform for the Punitive Expedition of 1916 and they're very nice Paul Hicks sculpts :

By the way, that's Pancho Villa the Yanks were after, not Poncho (yes, I can be pedantic that way sometimes  :D )

Ah, thanks!   ;)

The uniform was substantially changed in 1911 (did some home work) so ya, you can't go after Poncho Villa in this kit.  :)

I think those historical armies are in cahoots with the figure manufacturers. I have a longstanding beef with the Victorian British Army over this. Not only did they adopt a new uniform for just about every war they fought, sometimes they did it in the middle of a bloody war!  lol

Something always told me they were reading Tommy wrong...

During the time frame, the Americans weren't much different.

Seems from the Civil War to World War I (1865-1917) they changed their uniform at least 6 times.  :o

Edit: I blame the British.  :D

The Spanish and US artillery for the 1896-1902 wars in Cuba and the Philippines is already available!

Spanish 75mm Krupp mountain gun





US M1897 3,2" (80mm) gun firing




US M1897 3,2" (80mm) gun aiming




Do you like them? I hope so!

The miniatures are great, and the painting ain't half bad either.
