So that doesn't just happen to British tourists then?  lol

You may! After the Cavalry and artillery, the idea is to expand the TYW range to other armies before starting a new period.

Sorry, my question wasn't very clear; what is next for the TYW after you have finished all of the Spanish?

Thanks, that's fair enough and would fit very well with what you have released thus far  8)

These look marvellous.By the way, isn't it a bit odd that Ferdinard is shown in the painting as wearing 3/4 armour and stockings and shoes, rather than boots?

I think it's my mistake, when I painted the miniature I misinterpreted as a stockings and shoes what looks rather like a boothose.
