This is a unit of uniformed Spanish Militia. I am sort of building units in my Spanish for the Battle of Medina del Rio Seco. I say sort of because in reality I tend to paint what I feel like painting and fit them into some order of battle at a later stage. So saying that, this is a ‘generic’ Spanish militia battalion. it could be the Salamanca, Mondenendo or de Tuy militias. I have given them Spanish brown coats. Some members of the this battalion have not received full uniforms so have gone to battle in fatigue caps and jackets. Once again I have given them two flags because they look prettier with two flags.
Figures are all Elite Miniatures from Elite Miniatures Australia.

Thank you very much for that. I quite like them. I go for a fairly basic paint style but one that I have found lets me actually get something done.
Lovely job Brian. I’m the same, in that start off with an OOB in mind and then depart wildly from it. Much more fun that way.
Thanks for the kind words. I had fun with these – might do a few more militia battalions. So much to do.
