A second small batch of Scruby 25mm Mexicans from the Mexican-American War range departs the painting desk. These infantry are fielded as the San Blas militia. Like their comrades, the 10th Line before, these are painted in a semi-glossy, Old School style in attempt to approximate the style in an existing collection.That does it for my foray into Scruby 25mm figures (for now, anyway!). A fun little diversion that yielded two more Mexican battalions in little time and for less than $25. Perhaps some day, the quantity of Mexicans will be able to overcome the American quality on the field of battle?
While these Scrubys have a certain Old School charm about them, I wonder if new gaming projects are still being launched with these figures in mind? The sculpting is no longer state of the art and they will not fit in with the current crop of 25mm or 28mm figures on the market today. Actually, with a measurement of about 22mm from bottom of foot to eye, these might fit in satisfactorily with larger, so called 20mm or 1/72nd scale figures.
