Philippine - American War: Americans

Photos below are my first batch of Americans for an upcoming skirmish scenario with Filipinos during the Philippine - American War.  These are 28mm 1898 Miniaturas figures.  I like the variety of figures.  One negative is the barrels at the end of the guns are very thin and can easily break off, which you probably can see in the photos below.  Next painting batch will probably include command figures.

I'm painting these up to represent the volunteer Colorado Regiment that was in the Philippines.


Philippine - American War: Filipinos

Photos below are my first batch of Filipino's for an upcoming skirmish scenario with Americans during the Philippine - American War.  These are 28mm 1898 Miniaturas figures.  I like them a lot.  They are a bit shorter and thinner than the Tiger 28mm figures.  Lines on the uniform (if you can see them) is from a Prismacolor White pencil crayon / colored pencil.

1898 MINIATURAS

One of my upcoming projects is painting up 28mm miniatures for Philippine-American War (1899-1902).  I bought some Tiger Miniatures 28mm to start with and have painted up a few.  They do look pretty good.  I then decided to go full on 1898 MINIATURAS 28mm.  This company is based in Spain and focuses on the Spanish-American War and Philippines.

Here are some photos of part of my order to give you an idea of what you get.  I was surprised to see head and arm parts.  This will be first for me...assembling figures and painting them up.
