Nice figure in an underappreciated conflict. The Spanish and later the Mexicans were in constant warfare with Native American tribes such as the Apaches, Comanches, and tribes in California.

Do you have an idea of how large the range of Apache's is going to be please mate?

I have a few ideas for display games in mind but it would require a substantial range if miniatures.

Speaking of the armored Apache, I've seen illustrations of an armored horse that has just a cloth blanket. Maybe there are leather strips.
However, yours looks too much like a Byzantine half cataphract.
Sadly I would have to pass on that. If you do the version I've seen, I'd be up for a few.

I'm also interested to see what you will do with Comanches, and Spanish regular infantry. This is untapped territory for gamers.

thanks Gordon for your input
the Apaches employed a Myraid
of no blankets…antelope skins
small cedar wood saddles..the
armoured cavalry were very much a
"in house" work in progress to counter
the Cuera and their formidable rider
and some horse armour.sand and glue
were used on multiple layer of deer
skin,and then painted red,Green blue
or pale yellow..dependant on the
availablity of mineral extracts. looting
from wiped out Cuera and Spanisf infantry
vompleted the picture!
