French 100th Line Regiment
After a small lull due to some recent university exams I have managed to get back on track and knock out a couple more units, this time two battalions of the 100th Ligne: The 100th were part of Gazan's 2nd Division in V Corps at Albuera, where they first ca...

French 88th Line Regiment
My pace has slowed a little over the past month due to a combination of work and family commitments, plus some assignments that have fallen due as part of the second year of a law degree that I decided to take up last year for the sake of something a little...

French 64th Line Regiment
The next French regiment completed, the 64th Line were present in Girard's division at Albuera alongside the 34th, 40th and 88th Line: Since I have already completed the first two regiments, and have the 88th on the painting table at the moment, I have only...

French 58th Line Regiment
Another two battalions completed, this time the 58th line and again the Perry-sculpted Foundry figures in march attack pose: I am much happier with having trimmed the length of the flagpole for this regiment as it doesn't look anywhere near as unwieldy. Acc...

28mm Portuguese Army
Just a few pictures to mark the end of this project, with a group shot of the assembled army: The Front Rank figures were a joy to paint as usual. I am happy I went with the barretina as this accords more with my mental image of Napoleonic Portuguese troops...

Loyal Lusitanian Legion
As I have found to be usual at the end of most of my projects I had a number of surplus figures, in this case twenty or so Portuguese lights. Since I have already completed all six of the early Cacadore regiments the only way I could use them was to put tog...

Portuguese 6th Porto Cacadores
The last of the early Cacadore regiments, and the second to last unit of this project, the 6th Cacadores were distinguished from the more famous 3rd by their yellow collars: They formed part of Campbell's brigade at Bussaco, and were with Ashworth at Fuente...

Portuguese 3rd Villa Real Cacadores
The fifth and penultimate Cacadore regiment, the 3rd was probably the most famous of the Cacadore regiments beside the 1st: These two regiments spent most of the war operating alongside each other and were an important element of the elite British Light div...
