15MM Special Mexican Army Range for

"Gone To See The Elephant"

Specially designed to supplement GTSTE, these unique miniatures fill the gap among 15mm figure ranges of the Mexican-American War for these signature supporting soldiers and civilian personnel, and allow players of GTSTE to represent them in their table top games and bring their benefits to Mexican Army units.  

All figures are cast in pewter for TVAG by Zombiesmith to ensure top quality.

There are five bagged sets of castings available, each with its own distinct historical purpose in battle and reflected in the rules.

SPM-1--Priests And Processional, 10 figures to provide spiritual comfort prior to battle, comprising 2 Priests, 4 Monks, 2 acolytes carrying banners, and 1 each with incense burner and cross.

SPM-2--A full Military Band, a moral mainstay of Mexican field armies, carrying proper period instruments: 1 Bandmaster, 2 side and 1 bass drums, 2 fifes, 2 buccin (“BOO-san,” a dragon or snake headed precursor to the slide trombone), 2 cornets, 1 serpent (an archaic leather bodied wind instrument then passing out of fashion), and 1 ophicleide (a variety of tuba), totaling 12 figures.

SPM-3-- Mexican fifes and drums, 5 each totaling 10 figures.

SPM-4--Soldaderas for close support in action as well as in camp and on the march: 1 firing musket, 1 loading musket, 3 carrying food, 3 carrying supplies, and 4 carrying water, for 12 total figures.

SPM-5--Mexican Military Health Corps Field Hospital consisting of 1 Senior Officer, 1 Surgeon, 6 litter bearers and 3 litter patients, 1 soldadera tending wounded man. A PDF of a full color 15mm Hospital Tent for printing on card stock is available FREE for the asking by contacting TVAG and it will be sent by E-mail.
