Yo dudes,

Got some infantry on the go too.

The cavalry appear to be 3d prints, due to the…, Now I'm double thinking.

I think they are 3d prints, as they have some lower pimples. But they also have little adjoining bits, like for resin?? And lines, either way.

Remind me of GW resin cast 3d prints anit, so probably poorly cleaned masters were used???

It's hard to tell.

Infantry are metal. Woo Hoo!!!

PS no mould lines either, so must be prints?!?

Cavalry and cowboys? I see several badges there.

What is the brown that they are coated with? I like that color. A sepia or sienna?

I don't choose the figures, just using supplied colour reference.

The colour is Citadel XV-88. Because that's a colour, apparently. Thinned over white.

Its Mexican wars, I believe, hence the colours. Do look like ACW and lawmen though.

Thanks for the color reference.

Whoever designed these didn't do their homework because they don't look anything like Mex-American War cavalry.

Maybe it's the Mexican Punitive Expedition, the U.S. Army invasion of Mexico 1916-1917. Mexican Wars refer to all the wars fought in Mexico. So the figures might be for a variety of conflicts. "Santa Anna Rules" has a version called "Mexican Wars" which I think has rules from the Texas Revolution through the Mexican Revolution.

I would venture a guess that the figures with badges are Texas Rangers.

Rangers sounds right.

Dang, I should have looked behind me.

Uniform color and weapons are more 1890s Spanish American War used for Volunteers.
Not correct for Mexican American war of the 1840s.
