|Connoisseur Miniatures Spanish Napoleonics - very nice range of figures!|
|The eagle eyed will spot a Front Rank Sapper and Drummer boy that has been pressed into service.|
This is one of four battalions that Herbert and his team at DPS have painted up for me and I have finally gotten around to base. Along with a brigade of Spanish Dragoons they will help bring the allied contingents of the Anglo army up to speed.
|Lovely Spanish white with sky blue facings - always a lovely combination.|
The Connoisseur range always gets a good rap from me and this is for obvious reasons. The figures are well animated and proportioned and always look sensation "en masse" for battle in the "Grandest Manner". Though I use General De Brigade set of excellent Napoleonic rules, the large battalions suit me to a tee!
They also match in very well with the Elite Miniatures range of Napoleonics which I do prefer for the Peninsular. The flags are from the incredibly talented Grahame Black from GMB Designs.
