Mexican Federales

 I needed a break from WW2 British - just so boreing :rolleyes:

So I returned to my "fun" Mexican Revolution project with a few pieces I`ve been planning for quite a while.

Limber and French `75

This is total mock-up, the limber is by Combat Miniatures, the horses are a mix of plastic Italeri and Tumbling Dice ones, the crew are Combat Miniatures Japanese vehicle crew with Raventhorpe heads :lol: The gun is Raventhorpe, but seems very large next to every other `75 I own (so has been sitting in a drawer un-used until now).
