Some wip photos for a customer of marines of the guard. Not sure the manufacturer. Minifigs? Perhaps. Showcase standard.

Here we have the fully completed, minus some flags we're waiting on, battalions of Spanish and French. The Blue Spanish are Velencia, the French Light Infantry are the 28th and the French Line are the 1,2,3rd/63rd and the 1,2nd/45th.

We're trying out some basing for the Napoleonic Peninsular War. We're thinking of going with Battalions of 24 figures on 4 bases with 2 skirmish bases. The Skirmish bases are the right size to screen the unit in line. Command bases are on circles. El Supremo in this photo might be brigade command. The infantry are based for 2cm frontage per figure and are deeper by an extra 2cm. This is to allow for better decorative basing. Battlefield debris etc. Also viewing the unit from above the extra 2cm will give the unit more mass.
The textured base photo shows the look we're going for.
More updates later.

Hast thou any Bisto!
I just love this Spanish line nap from Blaze Away now sold by Lancaster Games. Very impressed with Lancaster Games service. My order arrived very quickly and I'm looking forward to a lovely charging Spanish battalion. Probably 4 bases of 8 figures and a few single skirmishers.
Keep Spanish eyes for future updates on this.

I've been working on a couple of WWII commissions each with different manufacturers. First we have Offensive Miniatures then we have Bolt Action. I am impressed with both but personally prefer the bulkier Bolt Action figures to the smaller more refined Offensive miniatures. Although that officer is gorgeous!
