Mexican High Command

The old chap in the middle and raising his hat is General Jose Diaz (affectionately nicknamed by his troops as 'El Muerto' with respect to his generalship abilities and I'm reliably told its not a compliment either. The figures are in fact the Sudan command set by the Perry brothers! For the basing I've made a combination of grit, sand and flock that does the trick - I've gone off the idea of painting the bases and then dry brushing, given my abilities I dont think its worth the effort. So I'm now missing that stage out.

  1. Lovely command, Ken. The Mexican tri-color on the pith helmets are very cool.

    1. Thanks Dean, I thought it was a nice effect. The generals from the Alamo had a nice sash in the tri-colour.

    1. Thanks Phil - I thought it would be drab and boring but they turned out ok!
