Indian civilians, I always enjoy painting up and creating non-combat pieces for all the various periods I do.
I`ve been planning expanding my Mexican Revoltion games in different ways, the were of course many tribes of native Indians throughout Mexico. Many of whom joined the various revolutions, starting with that against Diaz in 1910 after yrs of abuse by Government troops and the Rurales. Later after Madero`s murder Yaqui and other tribes fought against Huerta`s forces; later still various tribes fought for and against the Consitutionalists. Those loyal to Carranza and his generals (particularly Álvaro Obregón) fought against Villa whilst those loyal to Villa and Zapata fought against Carranza!
After the war was over however, things went back to normal and the Indians became unwanted and treated as lower class. There were incidents, killings from both sides, sometimes the Federal army was called in to quash local disputes or disperse (drive out) tribes which caused issues. Obregón is noted as being particularly brutal in his supression of his former loyal Yaqui allies, including bombing their villages from the air!
Among the pile of plastics I got of the nice man Alan Hamilton were some interesting non-combat Indian figures, now I know these are more Plains Indian than Yaqui/Apache but once again it`s my tabletop.
These are mostly old Atlantic (I`ve identified two different packs) with one ancient Airfix squaw which I remember from my youth, not my finest painting but hey ho.........
