Gaucho of the Infernales Regiment 1815

Gaucho of the Infernales Regiment 1815. New 1/9 scale resin bust from United Empire Miniatures,sculpted by Roman Rux. I painted this bust for the box art photo. Painted with acrylic's and used some oils on the red. Looked like an easy bust to paint but red is always a challenge to paint and he wears a red jacket and a red chiripa.The "boleadoras" stone balls, were a weapon fastened by leather thongs to a long leather strap. The Gaucho would spin the stones and sling them at the enemy, winding them up around their legs and smashing their bones.
