Especially commissioned to supplement GTSTE, these unique miniatures fill the gap among 15mm figure ranges of the
Mexican-American War for these signature supporting soldiers and civilian personnel, and allow players of GTSTE to represent
them in their table top games and bring their benefits to Mexican Army units.
