The fourth and last of my Spanish Line regiments composed of Miniaturas Dos de Mayo figures steps off (there will be quite a few to come from other manufacturers!).
Red is certainly the dominant impression of this regiment, whose origins date back to 1657; the buttons are white metal
The dynamic officer is a high point of the Regimiento de Infanteria de Linea Guadalajara!
Note the red epaulets of the sergeant; in the Spanish army, the NCO epauletes were in the facing color in the 1805 uniforms.
The white piping on the red collars is c;early seen here. Flags coming soon!
Once again, a variety of encumbrances carried by the soldiers make the figures especially interesting.
Here is the full "Division" of 4 Regiments.
On parade, awaiting their standards, which will bestowed upon them shortly, with suitable pomp!
Most Americans will think of Guadalajara in Mexico first, but it is also both a city and province of Spain, in the la Mancha region. While Gudalajara itself not a major tourist attraction, the Palacio del Infantada, constructed in the 15th century by the Mendoza family, who held the title of Duke of Infantada, is a marvel of ornate stonework. I found this statue rather interesting, poised outside the facade of the Palacio.
