    Hello Folks,
    Just finished this converted figure. The original figure is from Modelles et Allures, a fusilier of 1765, converted to resemble an officer of the company of Morenos .
    The company of " castas" was an infantry corps formed by Naturals, Mulatos and Morenos ( free emancipated slaves) from The Spanish Army serving in the Viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata as a militia company at the time of the British invasion in 1806 and later in 1807, this company was elevated to a Regiment after that and fought agaimst the spanish forces during the Revolution.
    All paimted in acrylics, i have painted the background and tittle in acrylics as well.
    Cheers 7209c898e7cd66f3b45d696254f2f0ba.jpg 20170827_182918.jpg 20170827_182927.jpg 20170827_183004.jpg 20170827_182939.jpg

    Beautiful achievement
    El Viejo Dragon has two-piece catalog (one really is out of stock)

    Another theme to deal with is that of South America
