Re: Spanish Artillery Uniforms

Hello Don Sebastian, I'm not quite sure, but I paint them in blue with red facings and stockings... I have seen them wearing this kind of uniform in several sites, as well as at the begining of the XVIII century.

Indeed, I have a dozen or so and have to say that it has some of the best artwork and I've seen. And it's wargamer oriented.
Cheers!

I dont know if it is avaiable in English but thi...
