A long overdue post for the second Spanish Line Regiment I painted...
This is Regimiento de Infanteria Burgos, first raised in 1694. These are 25/28mm Miniaturas Dos de Mayo figures.
I used Craftsmart "Shamrock Green' for the (1805) facing color, which appears on the cuffs and lapels, and on the piping of the collars and turnbacks. The buttons are yellow metal for this regiment.
In 1791 the regiment was wearing the same pattern of facings and buttons, except in Violet instead of Green.
That was then superseded by the short lived, universal Medium Blue coats and Black facings of 1802, as it was for all Line regiments, before the re-introduction of regimental distinctions with the 1805 regulations.
I bow have my Adolfo Ramos flags in hand, but need to add them to the regiments already completed, such as this one.
Burgos was the original, historic capitol of Castile. Indeed, the Spanish language itself is said to have originated nearby. El Cid, hero of the Reconquista, was born nearby and educated in the city. Pictured above is the monument to El Cid, located in Burgos (picture from Wikimedia commons).
