Up next off the paint bench is mounted hidalgos, rodeleros and a light gun.

Most of the units are painted and based - now for the scenery. For the Spanish I plan on making 3 colonist houses, a church and a government building. I’ll also make a small makeshift stockade/fort. Playing area is 48X48 so no need to go super realistic with the colony size. More pics to come!

A bit more progress. Still need to paint the doors/shudders. It’s harder than I thought to get all the measurements even for 3 different structures. I feel like the houses are possibly too large. Thoughts?

This has been a frustrating process… I decided to change up the dimensions of the door/windows and the “framing” around each. I'm pretty happy with the result but I'll probably try superfine milliput or green stuff for the next roof I make. Paint next.

Cimaroons would be really cool. I think Grumpy 15mm has a Portuguese line with some African forces.
I'm currently working on a 15mm Portuguese Colonial Army for DBR, using Grumpy figures. The Buccaneer range, also from Grumpy, both lacks tricornes and includes Cimaroon/African-esque crewmen who I have mixed in with my Shot (F) and Blade (F) (to use the Barkerese terms) elements for variety.

On a related topic, does anyone know how the Blue Moon Darkest Africa Tribal warriors compare size-wise with Grumpy/Essex figures? From previous experience of that sculptor's work (Blue Moon Italian Wars and Battle Valor Games Frigians) I would suspect them to be closer to 18mm, but there isn't a lot of choice around for sub-Saharan Africans in 15mm.
