Battle of the Alamo Texian Painting Guide (pdf).

The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 – March 6, 1836) was a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution. Following a 13-day siege, Mexican troops under President General Antonio López de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas, USA). All of the Texian defenders were killed.

Several months previously, Texians had driven all Mexican troops out of Mexican Texas. Approximately 100 Texians were then garrisoned at the Alamo. The Texian force grew slightly with the arrival of reinforcements led by eventual Alamo co-commanders James Bowie and William B. Travis. On February 23, approximately 1,500 Mexicans marched into San Antonio de Béxar as the first step in a campaign to re-take Texas. For the next 12 days the two armies engaged in several skirmishes with minimal casualties. In the early morning hours of March 6, the Mexican Army advanced on the Alamo. After repulsing two attacks, Texians were unable to fend off a third attack. As Mexican soldiers scaled the walls, most of the Texian soldiers withdrew into interior buildings. Most eyewitness accounts reported between 182 and 257 Texians dead, while most historians of the Alamo agree that 400–600 Mexicans were killed or wounded.

Painting information.

  • In addition to filing off any flash from the figure, the bottom should be flattened where the ingate was removed.
  • Wash the figure in warm soapy water in preparation for painting.
  • Prime the pieces with a white undercoat as many of the colours are light. Allow 24 hours to dry.
  • Paint as supplied is usually too thick. Thin with the appropriate thinners until it covers the areas touched by the brush but does not spread to other areas.
  • Dry brushing is used to give large areas a subtle blended effects blending the black undercoat with a colour on raised areas. This is also used to add highlights to raised areas giving the look of more depth and animation. Washing is used to add a colour mainly to the foulds.
  • We recommend that you give the figures a coat of either matt or gloss varnish.

    TEX MEX

    Just bought the Alomo sets of pieces and at the weekend I cast a set of the Texian back row pieces and a few pawns. Turned out very well and look excellent. Just need to dig around my acrylics and enamels for suitable colours for painting. I can't wait to see them finished.
