For the sake of variety, I painted this regiment, the King's Own, in the earlier 1802 uniform. It is the oldest unit in the Spanish Army, originating before Spain was even a Kingdom.
This uniform was a radical departure from the traditional white coats of Spanish infantry, and their individual facing colors.
Instead all units were to wear an identical uniform featuring a dark sky blue coat with black collar, cuffs, and lapels. The shoulder straps and turnbacks were scarlet.
The lapels and collars were piped scarlet; sources vary about the cuffs being piped scarlet as well, but Spanish sources seem to indicate they were left plain.
All units had brass buttons and collar emblems.
The usual red plume and red cockade of Spanish troops were worn with this uniform as well. Many of the troops in the Romana Division sent to the Baltic for service with the French were still wearing this uniform in 1807, despite the regulation changing back to white with varied facings in 1805.
I also painted the last of the Front Rank Spanish Grenadiers that In bought way back in 2009.
One company is in the same 1802 uniform, and the other is in the 1805 white uniform. If I remember correctly, the light blue facings are those of the Valencia regiment.
Once again, those magnificent bearskins!
The flag is that of the Valencia regiment., once again by Adolfo Ramos.
The figure on the far right is a sapper, wearing a modified and shorter version of the Grenadier bearskin.
