Navajo and Pueblo Warriors [28mm Historical]

A involved conversion project for a client's Western Themed 28mm Historicals collection.  8 total models, 1 of the Historical Navajo Leader  Manuelito, 4 Navajo Warriors, and 2 Pueblo Warriors. Each model was to have a mounted and dismounted version.  This was fairly daunting, but a fun challenge. The client provided me links to research as well as some imagery to go on. There were very specific basing requirements also.  I based the models on Foundry models, which conveniently came in mounted/dismounted pairs, I mainly reposed and added the correct kit as required.  As this was my first attempt at historical wargaming conversion as well as "realistic" horses, so I didn't want screw it up to say the least. I also painted this project, so I had to look up blanket colors, etc.   Pictures show a WIP (at various level) and then a Completed shot of each Warrior. Thanks for Looking.
