No Peninsular War game can really be complete without a small band of Spanish Guerrillas to harry the flanks of the French and disrupt their columns of march. I have already painted up the Brigade Games Spanish guerrillas as a militia regiment so decided to use Front Rank for my first actual Guerrilla band.
One thing that you can always be assured of when you buy Front Rank figures is that they are well cast, clean, take paint well and are damned well fed. These guys are obviously doing pretty well looting French supply wagons.
They are mounted two to three to a base, to reflect their irregular and skirmish deployment. I am in the process of painting a couple of character figures who will be based separately for Sharpe Practice games.
I am planning on one more irregular infantry unit – a Small unit of armed Spanish monks. I already have four Perry miniatures left over and have just ordered some more from East Riding Miniatures to finish them off.
