Taking some time to attend to another long neglected project, I finally completed my bag of Old Glory's Spanish American War US naval Landing Party. I completed the 19 figures including the command in the 1999-2000 time frame, and the balance have been languishing on the lead pile. Looking at the blog this appears to be the first time I have addressed this minis in over four years. I tried to at least match the painting style I used back then, but lack the materials to match the bases

Looking at the old models, it took me a minute to realize that I had actually kit bashed a pistol for one of the officers to make him look different from the his twin. I seem to recall there being a third officer model, so I may as yet need to complete this formation.
Looking through the SAW tin, I have a collection of unfinished US infantry, including the dismounted buffalo soldiers, as well as rough riders and cavalry. I added the last four cavalry figures to the painting cue and they are nearly ready as well. Perhaps I will get around to finishing the rest of the infantry before 2020.
