Something like these. Once painted in various browns they look fine as Spanish.

Agree Alan and have ordered a packed of 20 (1812 Militia in civilian dress), just notice they include command so if I want to do separate militia units they will be very useful.
I have also ordered a couple of packets of the Polish infantry as they have closed lapels and with a bicorne should serve very well with a few of these fellows thrown in with Bonnet de Police.
I have also earmarked the Alamo Mexicans to use as Spanish skirmishers and Canadian Militia to use as Dragoons in Hybrid uniform.

Hi Alan, had another look at your WIP and like the way the sashes make them 'Spanish' I dare say something similar could be done with the FIW Civilians. What do you think?

I haven’t seen those in “the flesh” but I think some could work, particularly any in waistcoats scattered among other figures.

If I get some I will send some photos (probably will as more table scatter the merrier). I posted some head swaps on the polish on my basing thread but here they are again.
Cheers
Andrew

Looks pretty good so far.
