    More superb additions to your collection! I especially like how Alvarado turned out.

    “Sunny” Alvarado, with his distinctive red hair, is definitely one of the more interesting conquistadors. Hugely popular with his fellow Spaniards (supposedly he was genial, kind and generous to a fault with his comrades in arms), he was at the same time a ruthless monster to the native peoples unlucky enough to meet with him. Few mourned his passing (crushed by his own falling horse, if I remember correctly). A man of contrasts, to be sure, as you point out in your excellent blog post.

    Looking forward to seeing pics of the game when it finally happens!
