Safari plastic tents

Safari tents are sold at art supply stores and museum shops anywhere from $ 8 to $14 USD. Nice for military camps or hunting expeditions in 54mm scale.

 I took the Safari tents and mounted them on thin plywood. Poles and pegs are tooth picks and meat skewer sticks. Lines are heavy thread. Add groundwork and grasses.

Marketenderin 2016

I only found a few photos of the Marketenderin from recent reenactment of the Battle of  Königgratz  I suspect that they were taking the 1000's of photos on line of the reenactment. Several women portraying Prussian and Austrian Marketenderin are shown here. I think that these women made militarized dresses based on their unit's uniform rather than from period sources.

Republican and Imperial Mexicans.

A few quick conversions to make Juarez's Republican Mexican troops and Maximilian's Imperial Mexican army. First. Chinese knock off MARX CW figures as Imperial Mexicans

Next. IMEX, Chinese knock-off, HERALD , and ACCURATE Republicans in various unifroms

Steve Weston Mexican Peasants

Marksmen CW as Republican troops

IMEX CW as Republican Artillery

Two IMEX CW as dismounted Imperial Mexican Lancers

These will possibly be actors and extras in a new story.
