This was a fun project, although I am not sorry that it is over especially as it was on the back of around seventy or eighty 15mm Essex Spanish units which I am also in the process of finalising. I have probably now painted enough Spanish to last me a life-time:
I like this picture as I believe it conveys some of the diversity of colour that can be found in a Spanish Napoleonic army, in this case the Irlanda, Ultonia, and Swiss regiments, a light battalion and an artillery battery.
All up, the army includes the following:
- 19 line battalions (including the 1st and 2nd Irlanda and 1st Ultonia battalions)
- 2 composite grenadier battalions
- 3 Swiss battalions
- 1 Guard battalion
- 2 light battalions
- 4 militia battalions
- 7 cavalry regiments
- 2 artillery batteries
- 1 guerrilla unit
Which is around 709 infantry and cavalry figures, with 98 horses and 6 cannon.
My next project is to put the finishing touches on some 15mm Spanish, and then move on to Portuguese in both 15mm and 28mm.
