My latest unit and the first of my 28mm Spanish Napoleonic project. These figures are from Brigade Games. The codes are Spanish Rebels I, Spanish Rebels II, Spanish Rebels III and Spanish Rebels Command 1. The Officer commanding is a single model code Spanish General. I also brought Spanish Rebel Woman with Musket but did not include her in this unit. She will be painted separately as part of a guerrilla unit. She bears more than a passing resemblance to “Teresa” from the Sharpe TV Series. These models are fabulous. Nice detail, no flash worth mentioning and pretty easy to paint. I did not use any reference material for these guys so just painted them how I thought they should look. The Brigade Games range do not have a standard bearer so I converted a guerrilla who had a pistol in his left hand to instead be holding a flag. The flag is one I found on the internet, re-sized and printed.
The models are based on laser cut mdf bases from Australian company Back-2-Base-ix.
