Penisular War: More Spanish Citizens

 You know how it is...your on ebay and suddenly you see something you don't really need but its a bargain. I bough a whole bunch of Wargames Foundry Napoleonic sailors a few weeks ago and when they arrived I thought 'What the hell am I going to do with them?'. After all I have painted a load of the Brigade Games sailors right at the beginning of the Napoleonic War projects, and I don't need more. And besides which the Brigade Games are better sculpted to boot.
 After sitting on them for a bit I had another look at them and realised that that would do for Spaniards with a minimal amount of effort, and I am always on the look out for more Spaniards for my guerilla band and militias. Not all the figures are suitable, and some will require more work, but these five were easy. I added a couple of sashes with Green stuff but otherwise they are right out of the box. They have nice characterful faces and were- like most Foundry figures, very nice to paint. These will add to my collection nicely and when Sharp Practice 2 comes out I hope to be able to field a whole angry mob of Spanish citizens and perhaps refight a bit of the Madrid Uprising.
