Hello folks, I've completed this figure a couple days ago. The original figure is from Metal Modeles, i did some mods to it to resemble an officer of the Horse grenadiers, the cords and pom-pon i decided to pait them in "bleu celeste" as they wore in 1816. This corps of cavalry is one of the most admired regiments in Argentina, it was created by General Don Jose de San Martin, one of our most regarded national heroes , like George Washington for the US. A little bit of background : The original regiment was founded by Argentine national hero José de San Martín in 1812. Its first military action was the Battle of San Lorenzo (1813). The regiment also played a key role as part of the Army of the Andes (Ejército de los Andes) in the battles of Chacabuco (1817) and Maipú (1818) in Chile. Traveling to Perú, Ecuador, and Bolivia, the Grenadiers took part in the Battles of Riobamba, Pichincha (1822) and Ayacucho (1824), and in the Cisplatine War. The size of the regiment fell to 120 men and it was disbanded in 1827 This renown regiment currently serves as Presidential escort and guards the Government Cheers!
