Front Rank also have an excellent range of Spanish Napoleonic figures which is what I use in my Spanish Army along with their guerrillas. Mine also double up for service in Sharp Practice.

I've yet to try them in a GDA game but one of the pleasures of playing with the Spanish is that no one expects you to win or do well, so when you do it's an added pleasure. Many of the senior Spanish leaders were abysmal but when well led Spanish troops could more than hold their own as they demonstrated in the later Peninsula War battles.

Beware Perry metals. Love the plastics but the metals leave a lot to be desired....

Perry metals are very nice figures but they have the worse flashing to clean up of all the major metal manufacturers.

Two new lines that have caught my eye are Miniaturos Dos de Mayo from Spain as well as the Paul Hicks sculpted Spanish from Brigades games.

Whoa! I had not seen the Hicks' Spanish figs. Looks like the range to have!

Other option for Spanish is Elite. Cheap but they work.

I fear this would be bad, really bad for my wallet
