Another paint 'conversion' this time showing how the Jacklex 20mm Japanese can be used as Mexican regular infantry, gunners and artillery with a little paint and imagination

Ok, so because I am not as educated as perhaps I should be on such things, about what year do the uniforms in question represent for Mexico?

Thank you

Coyotepunc, since they are meant to square off with Pershing's lads, probably 1915-16 or so. The Japanese were probably from 1905 (Russo-Japanese War), wearing a uniform style that was common at the time. So they would probably work from early 1900s to 1920-ish.


P.S. You could probably use them as Balkan War (1912-13) Greeks, with a different paint job and mustaches.

I always enjoy reading your posts and following your blog. Sterling brush work! I've been interested in this period since I was a wee lad but never gamed it. Hopefully one day. Please keep posting.
