Realized my collection had some major lacunae in world cultures, and needed more pre-modern Mesoamericans! So I got these Aztec feather suit warriors from Eureka. Tried using mostly GW contrasts on them; can report that the red and blue work AMAZING. You can tell the fella in green is in charge, both by the high-status turquoise cloth and by the rad shield. I had fun with these. Gender diversity is important, so I also picked up Caroline here from Antediluvian Minis' Lost World line. She is shown with a mini-Couatl from the Familiars 2 set (77196). More pix in the spoilers box. And if there are macahuitls involved. I'd be irresponsible not to include the very representative of the Winged Serpent on earth! (Turnaround below.) Now for some invaders! I wanted some conquistadors for Weird West purposes (Zamacona-types as in "The Mound," ghosts of Cibola-quests, etc.) Picked up a set from Eureka of the most recognizable and armored. Painted as fancy as possible, An unexpected Other from beyond the bounds of the known world, with impossible weapons and unheard-of beasts. This seems like quite the problem for our Aztecs! Well, early-modern-era problems require early-modern-era solutions. Nanahuatzin, the Chancred God, isn't the most glamorous in the pantheon, but he *gets the job done.* (This is Antediluvian's Pestilent Lich; both he and the Conquistador Zombies are from Antediluvian's Conquest of Maztlan line. What a magnificently rotted and pustule-ridden sculpt.) Backgrounds and props include GreenStuffWorld rollers in clay and foamboard, Hydra's Saurian Idol, those Nolzur's cannons, and a skull from RAFM. I enjoyed this one a lot. C&C welcome!
