The officers carrying the fancy shield makes more sense. Easier to paint a unit too.
I'm not a mercenary. Killing's more of a hobby for me.

The dance is performed "on the final night of the Sunrise Dance ceremony". available now from www.gringo40s.com

Just received my first order of figures,( including both Gaan dancers),and they are absolutely superb.
Great detail, animation and poses.
The pictures of the painted figures will be an invaluable resource for me.
Looking forward to future releases and my next order.

Great news about the pictures. I've found some info on Wikipedia about unit strengths and organisation.
Just need to find a suitable set of rules now.

and another :o :-* :o :-*
from the prolific Spanish
Artist Bueno...the variables
were many and varied...as
the troopers were poorly
paid..their NCOs took a cut
of their wages for "maintenance"
and sundries!! Hence jackets
and trousers..exact shade of the
Cuera varied. :) still they were
a stupendous looking unit..and
have fascinated me for years! :o :-* :o :-*

and according to the regulations
of 1772 there was to be a standardization
but this never happened as Apacheria
proved to be "not so productive" for
acquisition of new found wealth. unlike
the Mayans,Aztecs,and Incas down south
who were really sitting targets :-[
