Brazilian Mounted Officers

Riding out from the uniform store today are three mounted officers from the Brazilian army.




These three are the first of two sets of mounted officers for the South American conflict and will be joined by three Argentinians shortly.

    1. Thanks Aly. The Argentine boys have lush dash and more panache…a heal haughtiness to them.

  2. I just love the first one Mark with his poncho (?) nonchalantly thrown over his shoulder! Looking forward to seeing the Argentinians:)

  5. If you are on senior officers Mark, this project must be nearing completion? They look great by the way - lovely sculpting by Messrs Perry!

    1. Yes very close. I will do three units of Uruguayan infantry plus some officers and then just have to wait for the Argentine artillery and the Paraguayan officers to be released. This may all be done by year’s end.
