Evening all, I thought that this week I would start to show the forces that I have collected with the intention of re-fighting the battle of Medina De Rioseco, which took place on 14th July 1808 between French forces under Marshal Bessieres and Spanish forces under the command of Don Gregorio De La Cuesta.

I've started with General Merles Division, and some photos of the Division can be seen on my blog by clicking the link below, for those who are interested in that kind of thing


As always, comments and feedback welcome

Excellent presentation and a nice treat for the eyes.

very nice, I would just tone down the iron wheel rings on the gun wheels – they look like polished silver right now.

Good job, I think your forces look great.

Excellent models, very well done and presented.

One note, however:

Also attached to the Division was one battery of Light Foot Artillery, consisting of 8 guns.

Both foot and horse artillery were considered light, or field, artillery.
