Valencia Militia

More Napoleonics, this time my 4th Spanish Infantry Regiment, though hardly first line troops.  Of course this seldom was a concern to the Spanish until the army turned tail and ran...

 These are more of the delicately proportioned, crisp, Eagle Miniatures range.  A decent match for Perrys, but a little slight next to my Front Rank models.

Valencia militia are described as favouring golden yellow facings, and sky blue coats were a common issue from British stores, so this otherwise hypothetical uniform is founded on likely regimental outfits.  Indeed a search for contemporary images will represent many a Spanish soldier of the 1808-14 period deported as such.

A good quick job.
