The first of a mini-series of blogs looking at re-purposing Jacklex figures from across the range by simply repainting them for a different period or nation or war.

When Jack made the American range it was specifically for Jack Black Pershing's raid into Mexico. In this blog Greg Potter has kindly provided an article and pictures showing them as Americans in Cuba painted in different uniforms and Confederates as Spanish. I thought I would share his article and pictures as an inspiration to show what can be done.

Very nice. I have done a similar project in 1/72 with Red Box figures from their Boxer Rebellion range and a few ACW, British Colonials, and Boer War figs. The Red Box Chines un European equipment are perfect for Spanish in jipijapa straw hats. Other colonials serve for Spain's in Sun Hats. A fun period to be sure and a closer run thing than jingoistic post war propaganda has led us to believe. Cheers!
