28mm metal figures for wargaming and dioramas. Set includes 8 X 28mm figures and horses: 1 officer, 1 standard bearer, one bugler and 5 lancers. Comes with lances and 1 standard pole.
This vignette portrays the 5th Texas lancers during Confederate General Sibly's invasion of the New Mexico territory.
At the Battle of Valverde, the lancers charged what was believed to be an unseasoned Union unit. The Union unit was in fact a Colorado company which stood their ground.....the charge did not go well. After losing 20 men, the 5th Texas continued the battle re-armed with pistols and other firearms. Some accounts report that the lances were used for firewood that evening.
