Voluntarios de León

A few months ago I posted some Nassau troops that I had painted up as part of the French allies' so-called German Division, (Laval's 2nd Division) that served in the Peninsular war. They were from the big box set put out by HaT and I had far more Nassau figures than I had use for in the relatively small contingent that fought in Spain.
So I went looking for a Spanish unit that might might be a good match for these and came up with the Voluntarios de León. As you may know there were as many uniforms as there were cities and regions that raised militae post Baylen in 1808 so there were a lot to choose from!
Here are a few pics - there are lots more and some history of this unit here on my blog if you are interested in reading more.
