15mm Spanish Napoleonic commission update (1)


I Started these yesterday and finished them tonight they are
the first of two lots of Spanish dragoons.
both are yellow this one with red lapels then next has black then i will do the heavy cav which is blue with yellow lapels.


I might do a highlight on the red just to lift the colour a bit before these guys are sent.

It's nice to be painting after a two week break.

  1. Hey Mate

    Excellent work - they are looking awesome. Ive always loved the Spanish with their yellow jackets - they look like they were fun to paint. What company makes the figures?

  2. These are very nice. You got the coat color spot on, which isn't easy.

  6. I wouldn't worry about highlighting the red. It stands out nicely as-is.
