Spanish army for DBN rules, 12 points with options.

I managed to achieve my target of finishing my Spanish army for DBN before I settle down to some painting for friends from Monday. These kind of self imposed deadlines work well for me and helps keep the painting focused. In the last 7 days I have painted: 

2 bases of Spanish line infantry

1 base of Spanish Grenadiers

1 Spanish baggage base

1 base of Young Guard Voltiguers

1 base of Old Guard Chasseurs.

That's a grand total of 50 foot plus the baggage wagon and a couple of pieces to dress the base up, not bad going!

So without further ado here is the Spanish army and I plan to get them on the table soon as the opportunity presents. It comprise the following AB figures:

4 x line infantry (muskets)

2 x Militia

2 x Grenadiers

2 x Light infantry

2 x Light cavalry

2 x Heavy cavalry (dragoons)

2 x Foot artillery

1 x General.

1 x Baggage wagon.


  1. Very nice Lee. i am in admiration of your painting output. I have just timed myself for 3 hours and 10 minutes (painting over 2 sessions) and feel that it has been rather uphill with not enough to show for that!

    1. Hi Norm, I find that when I'm really in the painting zone time just flies by! I have some sessions when the brushes just wont work for me and I walk away for time, other times when I can't seem to go wrong. I do find that getting the flow of the paint right is a big factor (relating to your shaking post), especially fine white lines. That said I'm probably painting for several hours each day at the moment for myself and John.

  2. An absolute treat to see! Beautiful figures.

  3. superb as always
    cheers Old John

    1. Cheers John. I'm well into your second infantry regiment now :)

  4. Lovely - and I've always been a fan of the underdog, so it's nice to see the Spanish featuring! Happy new year..

    1. Cheers Steve. I'm hoping that the Spanish will fight with a little more courage under DBN than C&C!

  5. Oooohhhh, ahhhhh - those are nice! I love that you have gone for the double ranked infantry for DBN. A very nice look. I will look forward to hearing how they do in their first battle!

  6. Thank you David, the AB's are just so irresistible to paint. Hoping to get a battle in soon to see how they fight!

  7. That is so impressive and they look absolutely fantastic, as always!
    Regards, James

  8. Gorgeous Spanish army!
