I'm interested in:
Iberian elements of the Carthaginian and Roman Civil Wars
Peninsular War
Spanish Civil War
But I only have figures for the Ancient and Napoleonic options, so I guess that makes me most interested in them.

Peninsular War.

Mind you, I fooled around a long time with the Spanish Civil War. As a historian I'm fascinated by it, but as a wargamer, I just couldn't make it interesting.

El Cid because of the excellent figures from HäT Industrie, all of which I have purchased but none of which I have painted.

Second would be the SCW. My interest in that began in high school, when as an award for Spanish I was given Diccionario para un macuto, which I unfortunately misplaced at a later time. :-(

I have not gamed either of these, but if I found the time, I would do so in the above order.

Years ago I played one game (with a friend's figures and rules) involving Tercios versus Dutch. It was fun, but not enough to make me purchase and paint figures.

Then we moved in opposite directions (CA and PA) and can't game together anymore.
