Spanish Guerrillas started out as a 4 pose mini-set but 15 more poses were added during the double-set craze. It's considered a double hybrid set because both the sculptors and the scales of the masters were different.
Here are a few early sketches (by Bart)
And some other sketches.
From printed available material, the series of sketches were drawn and with the help and knowledge of enthusiasts, a make-up of the set was drawn up and finalized into the set we see today. Here are some painted up figures:
The soldiers with the round hat can be used to represent many different militia units (hundreds) in Catalonia and in the whole Spain from South to North.
Catalonian guerrillas (Uwe Wild).
Voluntarios de Valencia (Uwe Wild).
Milicia Honrada de la Coruna (Peter Styk).
Batallon Legera de la Zaragosa (Peter Styk).
Conversion (Juan Carlos).
Portuguese Ordenanza. The Ordenanza were a home guard of sorts and were called out in times of national peril.
From left to right:
Peasant from Central or Southern Spain
The perfect monk to motivate the spaniards in the sieges like Zaragozas
A guerrilla from many areas in Spain including Catalonia, Aragon or Andalusia
Guerrilla and Monk
At the time (16 years ago), this was quite an ambitious project, fitting many types of figures into one set.
