Hello everyone! I have been reading this forum for almost a year... But finally i decided to register and post something
I fell in love with this period when I saw part of Barry's collection in Warlord's Pike & Shotte. So i put aside my other projects and began buying and painting armies for 1660-1700 period.
By now, most of my miniatures are Front Rank and North star 1672. I also have some foundry , wargames factory and of course Warfare Miniatures (sadly i have not found any retailer here in Madrid)
Here are the pics ( Sorry i'm new and do not know how to post bigger photos , so you'll have to click one or two times in the pic)
Tercio de Córdoba or "Old Greens" The flag though historical, is conjetural, it's not posible to asign a certain flag to most tercios of this time.
Tercio de Madrid or "Old Reds" (conjetural flag)
Tercio de Sevilla or "Old Purples" this one is from a slightly earlier period, and will become "Castilla Regiment".
Dragones de Valansart (dragoons of Valanzart) they are based in skirmish order . The flag is from excellent 's boeri "spanish armies of the league of augsburg war" book
Tercio Viejo de Dragones (old tercio of dragoons)
Spanish Artillery: These are Wargames factory... i bought them for their price, but i am deeply dissapointed with the quality... I'll post a comparisson pic with Warfare miniatures artillery soon.
Finally a Command base with a Spanish General... Probably Marquis of Gastañaga or Duke of Villahermosa, both Generals and Viceroys of Catalonia or Spanish Netherlands. Sorry for the pics quality
Well enough for now... I have also painted a front rank tercio of Toledo "Old Blues" but sadly is in my hometown, Cartagena so i won't be able to post it until i go there.
Hope you like them !!
