In my last order of Elite Miniatures from Elite Miniatures Australia I got two packs of “Skirmish Pack – loading and firing”. No picture on the website and I was not sure what the miniatures were but decided to get them anyway. Turned out to be two standing and two kneeling firing poses. I was wondering what to do with these and decided to paint them as Light Infantry. I also based them on 25mm rounds – had thoughts of using these for Sharpe Practice. In the pics below you will see I have also tried them out in some of my Zulu Wars sabot bases – and they don’t look too bad either. They can double up as a small unit of infantry for Black Powder games. To the eight figures I added a colonel and a couple of march attack fusiliers I had left over. That particular base can be used as a brigade commander or as part of a ‘unit” of light infantry depending on the game requirements.
When I was taking the pics I had some interested onlookers.

Very well done; I like a few figures in the “kneeling, firing” pose here and there.

The Elite range can be very sketchy though – another couple of skirmishing infantry and perhaps an officer figure would really range this little range out.
Beautiful figures Brian. Your Spanish army is looking sensational.
Thanks Carlo. I still want to get Connoisseur Spaniards for my foreign regiments. One day.
Very nice Brian. These should complement your other Spanish light battalions very nicely. I much prefer the Spanish light in the dark blue coats and bicornes, rather than the voluntarios in the helmets.
Well everyone has the helmeted guys 🙂 I was thinking of doing a full battalion next for the Spanish. Will email Nathan soon with an order.
