AB and Fantassin Miniatures Spanish Militia

Hi All
Inspired by my friend Dan's sterling work in painting my Wurtemburg, Saxon, Westphalian and Bavarian troops, I thought I'd have a crack at painting some Spanish Militia.
BTW, check out Dan's work at his Blog: Gunner's Wargaming
So I ordered the figures and decided to hook in. Too easy, no real study required, (after all, they are militia, and Spanish at that), so I just painted them what ever colours took my fancy, (SHOCK, HORROR; I can just imagine the anal retentive crying in their Osprey's now).
Also, if I made a real arse of it, who cares, they are Militia after all,.... didn't I already say that.

All the miniatures are 18mm AB or Fantassin Miniatures. The fantassin figs I purchased via SCALE CREEP, (who, BTW provide OUTSTANDING customer care and service)
The AB MINIATURES I purchased from EUREKA Miniatures here in Australia, who also are a fantastic business to do erm, um business with.
Above: The brave Spanish Militia of unknown origins marches out of the sleepy village, bent on revenge against the vile French.
Below: The cowardly and murderous Spanish Militia feebly attempt to hold back the valiant French!

Bases are from LITKO. Flags are the free Spanish download types from warflag.

Hi Scott

Great job, good choice in colour for the militia too, I think, they could possibly have been issue some red coats by the Brits, nice job on the Victrix too, well done.
