28mm Spanish Guerrilla Leaders (various manufacturers)

Yesterday I knocked out three Spanish guerrilla leaders for my burgeoning Spanish irregular collection.  Manufacturers are Front Rank, Brigade Games and Eureka Miniatures.

A little background – a few months back my gaming buddy Roly gave me some bits and bobs he had left over from his own Peninsular War armies.  A dozen Front Rank guerrillas were included in this lot. I have just finished painting them today but not photographed as yet. To lead them I have painted this Front Rank miniature. He is  Don Gabriel Alvarado del Costa, also known by his nom-de-guerre ‘El Rolissimo’.

Finally we have the more than slightly mad monk, Father Salbatore, known as El Abad “the Abbot”. He hates the godless French and shows them no mercy.  He is a Eureka Miniatures figure from their Tyrolean Militia 1797-1809 range.

Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Peluche*

What can I say about these guys other than – Get some pants on!

These are Eureka Miniatures bears from their ‘The Good, The Bad and the Cuddly‘ range.  The are the first of a series for my 100 Acre Deadwood game I plan to put on at Call to Arms (Wellington, New Zealand) this year.

Il Buono

I decided on a slightly different blanket for this particular Blondie than the one the human version used in the movie. More colourful you see.

Il Cattivo

Angel Eyes. I like the way the handle of the revolver came out.

Il Brutto

I think it is a little harsh calling this Tuco Benedicto Pacífico Juan María Ramírez ‘the Ugly’.  Too cute for that.

*Peluche – is Cuddly as in a plush toy cuddly animal.
