Managed to finish off the Mexican quarter for Purgatory over the weekend.

Before the Gringos came Purgatory was known as San Miguel.



Some shots of the individual bases:-



Although primary for my TWI and Wild West games I think these would suit for The Peninsula and Pirate games.

This now completes this project and it's on to the terrain for Roman Britain.

Lots more photos on my FB page

Thanks for looking.

Those look great, congrats!

With a name like San Miguel, there must be a church of some kind around.

Of course there is, GamesPoet. There's a photo of it here:

Great work – and I am sure the Padre will have a nice little mission church soon!

I once hosted a Mexican-American War game where a wagon was bringing a bell to the new church. The villagers did not let either side get too close to the bell for fear of it being melted down like the last one was. Both sides stayed clear of the villagers and the bell ;)
Great looking village!!
