I like to plan my builds together in batches of similar or themed bits. A couple of these have sat patiently awaiting their turn for ages, this is about 2 weeks worth all told.

Smashed cart
Sgt`s Mess kit with some mods, added load & based
Image
Image
Image

Civilians
EWM figures, some minor mods, the mule is from the Matchbox Aussie set
Image
Image
Image
Field hands
Sgt`s Mess road crew with head swaps
Image
All together
Image
Odds n`sods additions to my factions
L-R: EWM Soldadera, Sgt`s Mess civilian, old Airfix Confederate
Image
L-R: 2 x ERM Soldaderas, another old Airfix Confederate
Image
Two as yet unreleased ERM figures (the Mexican has an arm swap)
Image
All together
Image
Clergy
A mix or Sgt`s Mess and Elheim (I`ve forgotten who made what?)
Priest plus two Franciscan Friars
Image
Priest, Nun & Novice
Image
French Nun
Image
All together
Image
Federal cavalry - maybe more Colorados?
8 old Airfix US Cavalry, 7 with head-swaps, most sabre arms replaced by rifle or pistol arms, some added kit too.
Image
Image
Image
Image
Crappy attempts to show the rearing horse/rider combo close-up
Image
Image
All together

Lovely work as always, Richard. A very useful looking assortment, too.

Cheers David :D

Not the finest quality, but extra stuff for the tabletop - I must have about 40 Federal cavalry now :lol:

More great variety of figures, promoting 'side show' theme, inspiring. (And I thought only old geezers like me still had those old Airfix Confederate infantry and US cavalry these days!)
I think the rearing photo does work nicely the blurring works well to give it some charm without missing the nice revolver you gave this rtider!)

PS A what if from a Mexican Revolution ignoramus
Did the Mexicans not follow the French tricolour with three vertical bars? Or is this a cavalry pennant following a different style in this period?
