Those are great - well done!

Thanks!  I've been enjoying this era so far, quite a change from my recent efforts. I'm having an issue with blue tones which is driving me crazy. I'm using the Foundry paints (have all the blue triads) and cant seem to get the right shade for the dark blue on the Portuguese. Triads don't really work for me at 15mm/18mm scale - not enough gh real estate.

Here's some fearless leaders...

I know what you are saying. I have the same problem with blues in 28mm. None of the Blues out there are dark enough for the deep shade. Except one. Humbrol acrylic 15.  It is gloss, but if you are matt varnishing your figures that is not a problem.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.
