Regiment Calatrava

My second Spanish heavy cavalry regiment, again using Front Rank figures and a flag from Maverick Models, this one representing the Calatrava regiment:

I think the blue and the white makes quite a nice sharp contrast on these, and was quite pleased with the way they turned out.

I decided to go with just nine figures for this regiment, representing a unit strength of 360 men.


  1. Hi - thanks for posting. I have just started painting Spanish (up to about 1811/12 uniforms for the most part) so finding your blog is a real bonus for me for inspiration. Cheers. Brian.

    1. Thanks Brian. 1811/12 seems like a better ways to go in many ways, as it would give a lot more scope than the 1805 pattern uniform. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing your finished items on your blog.
