I was fortunate enough to receive a parcel from Orinoco Miniatures yesterday containing the first four packs of their nascent range of 28mm miniatures for the South American Wars of Liberation, a period which I have previously delved into through the agency of converted plastic miniatures.
In a rush of justifiable enthusiasm ( hoorah!, no more converting of trousers etc with green stuff) I put brush to pewter yesterday evening and painted up the first member of this estimable corps of men.
Right, down to the nitty gritty. These miniatures match up well in size & stature to Victrix & Perry ( the only direct comparisons I can offer at present) though the rendering of the detail & anatomy is closer to Perry Miniatures in its execution.
The castings themselves are very clean with only a bare minimum of mould lines visible & no defects in any of the four packs received.
Each pack contains six different castings which I won't show here as they are very ably displayed on Orinoco Miniatures own website ( which I would post a link to if I knew how).
A really good start to a range of miniatures which should bring this adjunct to the Napoleonic Wars the recognition & popularity it deserves.
