I managed to complete the last of my 28mm Spanish figures over the Easter weekend, in the form of half a dozen Spanish generals and aides-de-camp:
I decided to put them on circular bases, mainly for stability but am quite pleased with the contrast between these and the rectangular bases which I have used for the rest of the army.
I particularly like the way the figure on the right turned out. He just seemed to "emerge" and ended up looking like a Guard or Swiss officer, which wasn't actually planned when work commenced on him:
I am probably a little less happy with the way figure on the left (below) turned out however, in that I accidentally used some very Christmassy-looking colours. I started to give him gold lace, but it began to feel too much like adding tinsel to a Christmas tree so I ended up giving him plain white piping:
That said, I found it rather amusing to position him in such a way as to appear that he is trying to ignore the orders being handed to him by the ADC. Unfortunately, Front Rank don't have a Spanish officer figure which is looking toward their left, so it was inevitable I suppose...
That's my Spanish 28mm project completed. I'll probably try to put together one final post on these as a fully assembled army (before I move on to some 15mm Portuguese) - mainly for my own amusement but also, hopefully, that of others who may be interested.
