OK Lonely Gamers are back into action. The latest images are of two new editions to my 1808 Spanish Napoleonic Army. Both units have been painted by Leroy Simpson (our 'Master Painter') and comprises mostly of Front Rank Miniatures. The only odd ones out are the horses for the Line Cavalry, which are from Elite Miniatures. The regiments I have had Leroy paint were two Infantry battalions of the De Irlanda Regiment and from the Spanish Line Cavalry the Del Rey Regiment No.1. I now only have one more Line Cavalry Regiment, four Infantry Battalions (either Swiss or Guard Regiments) and one more battery of guns to complete my Early War Spanish Army. I was then thinking of painting a few battalions in the later 'Top Hat' uniform, just so that I can drag the Army out for a few more years? Anyway I will see how I go.
The basing size we work on is 40x40mm - four figures to a base - 16 figure battalions.

The cavalry are based on 50x50mm - two figures per base - eight figures per regiment.
