In Horse, Foot and Guns, what would the most appropriate classification for Spanish infantry be – muskets or bayonets? Would a mixture be most appropriate to reflect the lack of common drill standards? And would this change over time?

And what would the most appropriate classification for the light infantry be? 'Light Infantry' (under the rules) would seem unlikely – is there any justification for 'Marksmen' or is it best just to classify them the same as the line?

Go to PB's website, here


and download the army lists (#2 in "current projects"), take a look at list 10 and you'll see that Penisular War Spanish are classed as 'inferior muskets'

Your light infantry question will best be answered by looking for them under their respective nationalities in the lists.
