The Foundry conquistadors arrived today and very nice they are too. I have enough figures for a decent force for the War in El Dorado rules in the Foundry Compendium, although some crossbowmen and war dogs would be a useful extra, if I can find any that match. For the opposition I'll use Copplestone Botocudo warriors as I already have a handful and can easily add some more with an army deal later on.
In the meantime, I've ordered a copy of the Ian Heath Foundry book, which is the basis for the army lists in the rules and should prove to be valuable reading material in general, as I know next to nothing about the period. It wasn't very expensive so will go in the Xmas stocking, along with the El Dorado figures. This is yet another project for the leadpile but the figures are great, so well worth it in the long run.
