Partisans for Sharpe Practice

My first full group of painted figures for my Anlgo-Portuguese army! Six Portuguese Partisans armed to the teeth and ready to hunt the French.

They're all from Front Rank's superb partisan/guerrilla range. Movement tray by Charlie Foxtrot.

They're all painted in a range of mainly Foundry colours; the complimentary triads make it far easier than messing about mixing shades.

I've painted each of them with an item (usually a sash around the waist) in Foundry Royal Purple as this is the colour of their partisan band.

The basing is a mix of small stones and grit/sand given a base of Americana Honey Brown then highlighted with VMC 847 Dark Sand then Foundry Boneyard light. Colonel Bill's Winter Grass along with a few arid looking tufts of longer grass and some small pieces of Woodland Scenics clump foliage finish it off nicely.

Next will be their leader, the infamous Açougueiro - "The Butcher" and an irascible little holy man on a donkey!
