"So for having some variety I decided to start with a second project. As I am always after the lesser known subjects, I decided to find some battle to use for all the unpainted ACW figures which are lying around…"

I am very interested in this conflict and I would love to collect armies in 15mm

I did armies for Tacna a few years back using the lovely Outpost Wargames figures.

Research was based on the Partizan Press book (which is outstanding), the Outpost Guide and a link from Armand, for which a huge thank you…

It was a link to a Spanish language web page. Using that, I did a search on the Chilean Google for Tacna and what a wealth of stuff was there!

Managed to pull together the uniforms for most regiments at the battle…

Oh and I have this book too and it's grand! :)

A shame the photos have disappeared from this report of a Tacna game:

I vaguely recall having suggested in a long-ago TMP post that, though their equipment is too modern for the ACW, the Airfix figures would probably work well for some late 19th century Latin American armies. It's good to see someone taking advantage of the opportunity presented by that company's lax approach to historical accuracy.
