back row - slingers & archers (Caesar Aztecs)
front row - slingers & atl atl (conversions)
back row - Canari/Cunti (Incas), bowmen (Arabs) & blades (Aztecs)
front row - bow, slings & more bow (all conversions)
I decided to go for 3 skirmishers or 5 warriors to a square base. Reasoning that I am only going to use these figures for "DBA in the New World" I thought that this was the best way.
So where do all these 'extras' come from?
Waterloo 1815 - Dervish Infantry
I noticed that some Meso-American warriors (such as the Anti) had wrap-around breechclouts.
(1) Atl Atl - from plastic card & rod plus drawing pin shield
original - fig 1c (PSR)
(2) Bowman - much trimming - quiver from sprue
original - fig 2a (PSR)
(3) Bowman - treatment as above - original standard-bearer for comparison
(4) Slinger - sling from wire & putty, shield is a drawing pin head
original - fig 1a (PSR)
Now I need some blades - looking at Libyan warriors for them.
