Spanish Militia and Guerilla Recruits

It's been a little while since I posted an update on me Peninsula Napoleonic project. My initial thoughts were that I'd only build opposing sets for Sharp Practice 2, but as I've started painting I can easily see these being incorporated into a larger Napoleonic collection... must resist, stay on plan (well that's the good side, the one I always pay attention to!).

The latest offering consists of 12 recently painted recruits that can either serve as Militia or Guerillas in my Spanish forces. The figures are 28mm Eagle Figurines, the painting style I've chosen for the project as a whole is a simple one with a gloss finish. I feel gloss works better than a matt finish with a basic painting style. 

In the pictures below I've included some group photos of my Spanish Militia/Guerilla forces.

18th Regiment of Foot 'Royal Irish'

18th Regiment of Foot 'Royal Irish', 28mm Front Rank Figurines, flag from Maverick Models. Lots of 18th century figures flying off the paint table at the moment. Feel that concentrating on one period has speeded up my painting, as if I've got my eye in on the figures I'm painting. That may of course be  misleading, but I'm enjoying painting WSS at the moment. Not to say that other periods will be completely neglected, just put on hold while I'm in the mood for the WSS.

Wood's Regiment of Horse

Wood's Regiment of Horse for my WSS British, 28mm Front Rank Figurines with a flag from Maverick Models.

Horse colours should be dark, but I took a liberty for a campaign look. I think my next regiments will be on dark mounts.

Anglo Zulu War Defences

Recently I've been working on my Anglo-Zulu War British forces and finally getting round to painting up the defences that came with the Warlord Games Horns of the Buffalo - Rorke's Drift set. The British included are new additions to those previously shown, and well timed reinforcements with the imminent  re-release of Death in the Dark Continent rules by Chris Peers. This is a new gaming experience for me as I haven't played them before, but given Mr Peers form as a rules writer, it's one I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on. 

The figures are 28mm and a mix of Wargames Foundry and Empress Miniatures.
