Iberian Contingent - Spanish Generals
These Spanish Generals are paint conversions of three of my surplus Rose Duke of Wellington figures (see The Old Metal Detector here). They are after Bueno, from his Uniformes Espanoles de la Guerra de Indepencia. Becausee these very early figures lack raised or engraved detail they are very good for paint conversions. Also their long pointing arm offers some simple opportunities for animation.
Other figures I have produced using these include the Spanish colonel seen elsewhere here, plus a Polish Staff officer (after Knotel) and a mounted naval Captain to command my Hinton Hunt RN Landing Parties and Marines.
