Phil has come through with a lovely battalion of 28mm Spanish Napoleonics to add to his Peninsular collection.
These lads depict the 'Regimento Voluntarios de la Patria' who saw action at the Battle of Albuera. Phil found some very useful background history and colour information here: http://balagan.org.uk/war/peninsular-war/order-of-battle/albuera_spanish.htm
Phil had a spare box of Victrix plastic French which he put to good use to model these. He came across the idea from Aki at Too Much Lead and the Victrix models seem to fill that gap quite well, especially as he did them in campaign dress - ragged and mixed in their poses. Very nice work here.

Phil found working on these to be a welcome change from painting ranks of Redcoats. He'll be adding colours from Flag Dude when he (hopefully) visits Salute later this upcoming spring.
These thirteen will give Phil 65 points. Well done!
