Peninsular Warriors - Portuguese Cacadores

A friend kindly gave me some British Warrior figures that had been sitting in his stash for years and he felt that he would probably never paint them. They included some British Rifles. I already have one unit of these figures and having two in such a small army seemed excessive.

With their unique brown uniforms and blue facings they looked quite smart. Here is the result:

Next in the production line are French Horse Artillery and British Foot Artillery.
