The conflict has always intrigued me, and earlier this year I bought some figures from Freikorps to game the period. Her is the first painted unit, some Paraguayan militia:
|Tough Guarani peasants who don't need trousers!|
|The Paraguayans quickly ran out of proper uniforms - loincloths and chiripa kilts replacing trousers in many cases.|
|A close up of some of the spear armed soldiers making up numbers.|
Figures are Freikorps 15s from QRF.
