Spanish Spearmen for the Reconquista

I
Remember when these Normans were part of the Casting Room Miniatures' stable of figures?  I do.  I picked up a couple of dozen figures during a CRM sale.  When I returned to add more, the figures were gone.  Later, I found that the whole CRM Norman range had been moved under the Wargames Foundry label, proper.  Well, they deserve an upgrade to the Foundry arsenal.  Excellent sculpts!
Adding to the Reconquista project are twelve Normans to battle the Moors on the plains and mountains of Spain.  Time to gather the second dozen into the painting queue.
