I don't know much about these South American (?) types … what are those 'hockey stick' type weapons, Simon?

Not a period I have ever gamed, but these are great looking figs! One thing, in looking at your website, everything seems to be sold for certain gaming systems. I for one would not need to buy figures with bases included, so any chance you will offer figures without them at a slightly reduced price over the figures with bases?

its called a lonco quillquill. Made of luma wood ,over 6' long and had an angled end to hook horsemen out of the saddle.

An interesting army who held their own against the Incas and the Spanish. The figures here are the later period with the adopted Spanish armament

Same here. Bags of figures only would be helpful.

I'll look into it. But the reduction wouldn't be much I'm afraid

thanks

The Mapuche have a facinating story and a fun IMO army. They fought the Incas to a standstill while they were conquering everywhere else. The Mapuche then met the Spanish. The Spanish overran the Northern tribes, but the Southern tribes fought a battle against the Spanish for over 300 years until they were finally defeated in the late 1800s.

They were quick to use captured Spanish weapons and armor. They also captured horses and began to learn to ride them. In the late 1500s and 1600s they even had entire mounted armies (mainly raiding forces). One of the few Native American armies that had both infantry and cavalry. Some of them can even be used to fight in the Wars of Liberation against Chilean troops from the 1820s.

I for one am very glad to see this army being produced.
