Here are the last pictures of the old Houston's Lyzard Grin Maximilian Range. Only 2 figures that I did not have from the catalog is the French Zouave and the Mounted Contra-Guerrilla.

Maximillian in Mexico Old Houston's figs

 Recently I saw the New Gringo 40 Belgians. A must for 2013 purchases! Well I have a lot of old Houston's Lyzards Grin Maximillian Range, and wouldn't mind filling out a few units. Turns out that The Virtual Armchair General will soon be re-releasing the range. A few gamers wondered about the scale difference and look of the figs. So here are some quick photos of a few of my figs and a few Perry/Foundry comparison shots. Sorry about the few fuzzy pics.
