Two more Napoleonic units - British and Spanish infantry
I think both of these units may be Der Kriegspieler figures - I painted and based them quite a while ago and have only just got round to photographng them. When I feel brave I may get the Green Stuff out and have a go at adding greatcoats to some command figures for the British. The Spanish officers are from Douglas Miniatures - not a very good photo I am afraid.
I do have a large number of Spanish and Portuguese infantry battalions which I have acquired and which are waiting painting - the Portuguese are eight line and two cacadores battalions, all Hinton Hunt, with a third Der Kriegspieler cacadore battalion; and four and a half Hinton and three Douglas Spanish line battalions. It may be a while until I get round to these, but it will beef up all my Portuguese brigades in British Divisions to full strength, and bring my Spanish contingent up to one and a half strong or two weak divisions.
