Portuguese 6th Porto Cacadores

The last of the early Cacadore regiments, and the second to last unit of this project, the 6th Cacadores were distinguished from the more famous 3rd by their yellow collars:


















They formed part of Campbell's brigade at Bussaco, and were with Ashworth at Fuentes de Onoro, Vittoria and the battle of the Nivelle:




































That's all six early Cacadore battalions now completed, for a total of 120 figures in all.


















I now just have to complete one battalion of the Loyal Lusitanian Legion, which I am hoping to have done by New Year's, and that should be it for this particular project.

  1. If anyone has more and/or better looking Cacadores, I'd be surprised Lawrence. You must be looking forward to painting the LLL in green, for a change of pace!

    1. Thanks Peter and, yes, it is quite a relief to be moving on to a different colour. Hopefully I'll have them completed before the year's over.
