New 28mm Mexican Cavalry of the Maximilian Adventure (1861-1867)

The upcoming release should please all those gamers who have been requesting that we ad Mexican Cavalry to our Maximilian range. We thought it would be a good idea to give you a taster of what is coming.

 All the figures come with campaign laden horses have saddle rolls, saddle bags and lariats all cast separately giving them terrific detail and satisfying bulk. The irregular cavalry are mounted on smaller horses as per their historic counterparts and this helps add to the slightly rough and ready appearance of these units.

Regular Mexican Cavalry Trumpeter

The regular Cavalry all wear the standardized uniform of 1857; Steel grey trimmed in green with shako and pompom. Although sources do also give accounts of blue coated cavalry and greater or lesser amounts of trim.

Irregular Mexican Cavalry Lancer

The lance wielding irregular cavalry tended to dress more like rancheros rather than white shirted peons and their attire would depend more on personal wealth and looting ability. So plenty of flash with these chaps.

 We will keep you posted as to when these and their compadres are available. So watch this space.
