A quick Portuguese interlude!
I hope to play a few moves of the battle this evening, but in the meantime this first battalion of Portuguese infantry will be rushed onto the table having arrived slightly late. Very enjoyable unit to paint and I'm pleased with the overall result. I looked at a few flag sources but these from the 'Warflag' site looked especially vibrant and crisp, ideal for 6mm units. The next Portuguese battalion is already undercoated and will be followed by a base of Cacadores. I'd preferred to have seen the officers in shakos and did consider a head swap (the size of a pin head!!), I may yet have a go.
