Spanish Militia

These are the spanish militia, the other half of the Spanish Guerilla set from Hat Industries. There is enough on that set to come up with these 3 small units of militiamen.

There is rather scarce information on colors of napoleonic spanish militia uniforms on the web, but what little I could find suggests white, blue and brown were the main colors used, so I painted each unit in one of those.

With these, I finally finish that which was one of my first kits of napoleonics 1/72, bought a few years ago and left to sit on my shelves for a while before getting their well deserved turn on the painting qeue.

  1. These look really fine, Matgc. Yes, you can't go wrong with Spanish militia - almost any colour will do as virtually every municipality came up with their own uniforms during the levies of the new militias in 1808! But the brown was most common, even with line infantry as the war progressed as it was local cloth and easily obtained.
    I really like your painting - first rate!
