New greens for Chaco War range - Infantry with SMG's

Next up in our Chaco War range are some new greens of infantry with SMG's for both sides (Bolivian and Paraguayan). The Bolivian Army had a large supply of SMG's (mostly Bergman MP28's and Steyr S1-100's) which in the course of the war the Paraguayan army began to capture and distribute to their troops. These were highly effective in some of the close fighting in the jungles and trenches of the Chaco Boreal.

The figures have been sculpted to reflect the harsh campaign climate of the Chaco, and are very much based on contemporary photographs. These are now on their way to casting, and should be available on our main website in the coming weeks. There is more news about other figures which we shall be announcing shortly.


  1. Very nice figures. Hopefully there will be some news about upcoming South American Wars of Liberation figures as well!

    All the best,


    1. Thank you Rob. Indeed, new figures for the Liberation Wars are being sculpted as we speak. More on that in a few weeks. There are more figures for the Chaco War which will be announced soon as well :-)

  2. Any update on the new liberation wars figures?


  3. Hello Rob, I've already see a few test shots, so don't worry. The figure sculpts are quite advanced for peasant infantry and generic infantry in fatigue caps and sandals. We also have the dollies completed for all the cavalry, so Llanero cavalry are on the way. Contact us directly at the Orinoco Miniatures site if you'd like more information.

    Best regards.
