Warlord Games Napoleonic Portuguese Infantry

My latest additions to my over crowded hobby room are finished! Now Napoleonics are my nemesis and always have bring, I struggle with them and to be honest I've no idea why! I've always being captivated by the era, and the uniforms. I blame Airfix myself but I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in that train of thought. 

I'm no expert with Napoleonics and even less so with the Portuguese but that hasn't deterred me at all. So I've probably made some glaring mistakes but it won't be the first time or last. 

                         So onto the figures 

 It's strange but I think the uniform sums up the Napoleonic era,  the flags are included and I chose to paint them up as the second. I painted a few in different colour trousers just to add a bit more variety. 

 They are classed as easy build and to be honest it made a nice change compared to Victrix figures. Sometimes it's nice to be able to crack on with the painting and not fiddle with loads of parts. Most of the figures are made up of a body, a pack and a head! The flank company has seperate right arms and separate water bottle, so the most parts you have to stick together are five! 

 They do look good all lined up ready to fight, even if I do say so myself.

 Here they are in all their glory, colours flying and drums beating! They fought as good as they looked from what I've read, Old Nosey was truly impressed with them. 

So for now I've conquered my Nemesis! It may be a while before I paint anymore Napoleonics but I've plenty more stuff to paint and my WW2 Russians and Red Devils are still waiting patiently for the table to clear. 

So thanks for looking, feel free to comment and I will post again very soon!  Well that's the plan.

Thanks again 
Cheers for now Russ
