    The only real advantages Spain has are using guerillas, setting them up outside your deployment zone to ambush/surprise opponents, and the fact that their troops are cheap (beware: you get what you pay for lol!). This means you have to use your numerical advantage to flank, create unit 2 vs. 1 situations, etc.

    It can be a fun challenge, but if a player is better than you it will only grease the wheels of defeat if you go with Spain!

    Of course, you need to buy the Peninsular DLC to get the guerrillas. Otherwise you need to use them as hordes if you play Spain.

    I love their line infantry. So cheap. I usually use the guerillas to take important buildings and places like hills. It takes a bit of practice but you would have to mix in their very cheap infantry with artillery (If the match allows it) and create a firing zone. Their cav should only be used to check enemy cav. And in some cases, the guerillas can be part of your mobile force to flank.
