Mexican Additions

Mexican Additions

I like to plan my builds together in batches of similar or themed bits. A couple of these have sat patiently awaiting their turn for ages, this is about 2 weeks worth all told. 

Civilians
EWM figures, some minor mods, the mule is from the Matchbox Aussie set





Field hands
Sgt`s Mess road crew with head swaps

Odds n`sods additions to my factions
L-R: EWM Soldadera, Sgt`s Mess civilian child passenger, old Airfix Confederate

L-R: 2 x ERM Soldaderas, another old Airfix Confederate

Two as yet unreleased ERM figures (the Mexican has an arm swap)


All together

Clergy
A mix or Sgt`s Mess and Elheim (I`ve forgotten who made what?)
Priest plus two Franciscan Friars 

Priest, Nun & Novice

French Nun

All together

Federal cavalry - maybe more Colorados?
8 old Airfix US Cavalry, 7 with head-swaps, most sabre arms replaced by rifle or pistol arms, some added kit too.




Crappy attempts to show the rearing horse/rider combo close-up


All together


Wrecked Cart

Wrecked Cart

Sgt`s Mess kit
A little tinkering, painted up, based and with added load

Sdkfz 251 b mitt Pak38

Sdkfz 251 b mitt Pak38

Now I`d seen this first photos ages back and always assumed it was 10th Panzer vehicle, because of the other vehicles photographed including a captured T28 SP AA. But the second photo which is obviously the same vehicle shows it to be a Ausf B 251 (which therefore can`t belong to 10PD), it has been identified as belonging to 15th Panzer by various people on the internet? Anyway i happened to have a 30+ year old Fujimi "b" so decided to build it using a SHQ gun, mixed stowage and crew.
