Napoleonic Spanish Grenadier Regiment Zamorra

Spanish cconverged grenadiers to give a bit of spine to the brigade  

Just a quick post today to show some lovely Peninsular Spanish infantry from the lovely range of figures available from Connoisseur. 

Lovely GMB Flags and Front Rank cords and finials help to really set off the battalion

Cloth patches on these always help make them stand out on the table.

I have often wondered why LBMS or any other company hasn't made transfers of the cloth patches on the back of these fine fellows bearskins.

Close up.

These chaps continue to march past the village with "supporting" cavalry in the background
