These 28mm Gringos 40's Gendarmes de Elite are hot off the painting table. They were a lot of fun to paint up as the sculpts are very finely detailed with bags of character with horses sharing this characteristic with the troopers. I have to say that I've never painted any Gringos Miniatures up before and I am very impressed with the overall quality. They are cast in nice hard white metal too and they require next to no cleaning up which is always a bonus. I would certainly recommend these mini's to anyone interested in the 'period' (that word again!).
I think I'll let the pictures do the talking from now on:
